I agree with the idea since duplicate tags are never good, but propose we ditch the acronym and rename the tag to world-war-one or something similar. This removes the discussion of how we indicate the numeral and makes it clear from the start what the tag is about to people who are not familiar with one or more of the acronyms. It might then also be a good ...

Good catch. I've remapped latin into latin-language and synonymised them.

I do not think that "church" and "Christianity" should be merged. The tag makes sense as being about Christian places of worship. Questions tagged with Christianity should be about the religion as a whole, whereas questions about church should be specifically about the structures themselves. Tags can be removed from posts where they don't make sense, but it ...

sumeria has been merged into sumer, and made synonyms to prevent future misuses. I want to commend you for making the right decision bringing this up on Meta instead of editing yourself. In general, users should not manually edit tags in bulk, as this will spam the frontpage. Instead, moderators has the ability to merge and synonymise tags silently, ...

There is now a new tag world-war-one that contains the info from the old ww1 and the extended info from the old wwi (if I did it right). Its child synonyms are wwi and ww1. It contains 103 questions. There is also now a new tag world-war-two that is essentially a rename of the old world-war-2 (which appeared to be our previous master synonym). Its child ...

My initial response would be no. war is used for questions about specific wars. Why did Operation Market Garden go ahead when the allies knew German armor was in the area?   How did Israel win the Six-Day War? warfare is used for more general questions. Did World War II-era bombs actually whistle?   How frequently were homing pigeons used in the ...

There is much more to buildings than their design and construction. Perhaps one is interested in their ownership. Or in events that took place in them. Or when they were demolished. Besides, not all that which is constructed is actually a building. Is the Panama Canal a building? Is the Georgian Military Road a building? Is the Golden Gate Bridge a building?...

Yes, sumeria is a redundant (and misnamed) duplicate of the pre-existing sumer tag. The few questions currently using it should be retagged so that this duplicate tag will get removed from the system.

In my random ramble today, I looked at the same thing. While ihtkwot's answer makes sense, in the idea that while kingdom's are monarchies, monarchies are not necessarily kingdoms, looking at the set of questions that are presently tagged as "kingdom" (22) does actually follow the logic that a "kingdom" could be tagged as "kingdom" (so "Kingdom of Norway" is ...

To me, a "kingdom" refers to some sort of region that is ruled by monarchs, but the kingdom may be ruled by multiple different monarchies through the ages. Additionally, questions about "monarchy" can cover things such as changes to the monarch's power, the life of the monarch, etc. Those questions could also be framed from the viewpoint of the kingdom, but ...
