This a follow-up discussion to high-energy-astrophysics tag usage guideline, could this be improved?

There are currently (February 17th, 2021) only 9 questions tagged , compared 22 questions tagged , 26 , and 33 .

  1. Many physicists I know use "high-energy-physics" and "(elementary) particle physics" synonymously, so should we introduce a synonym?
  2. In my mind implies and , but not the other way round. Is that a potential problem that users might get confused which tag to use, if there are tags of different abstraction-levels (parent-tag "particles", child-tag "neutrino")?

    $\begingroup$ I'm going to leave #1 to others to discuss, but thought it was worth mentioning in regards to #2 that having different levels of abstraction is a good thing. If people get confused, we can just fix the tags on their question for them. Often it's helpful to put both the higher-level and lower-level tag on a question if there's room for it. If you run out of room, stick with just the most specific ones to the question. $\endgroup$
