We've been using the [gravitational-waves] tag for 10 years, do we really also need [gravitational-wave-astronomy]?

Do we need the [nomenclature] and [naming] and [terminology] tags?

They make sense to be distinct when they are used distinctly. On the English SE there was a question about the difference between 'nomenclature' and 'terminology': https://english.stackexchange.com/...

Should a few more users vote to accept the csst tag wiki and excerpt quickly to ensure that nobody else follows my lead and rejects them?

It's been done, thanks! https://astronomy.stackexchange.com/tags/csst/info Questions regarding the CSST, aka the Chinese Space Station Telescope or Xuntian.

Difference between resource and reference-request tags?

I was the OP of the question that uhoh mentioned in the question and I just used the "resource" tag to search for questions similar to mine. The presence of two similar tags of the same ...

Should we add the eyepiece tag to all questions that are about eyepieces? Or instead delete it since tagging would be a hopeless, quixotic quest?

Voting on the question is currently +3/-0 and there's an affirmative comment with two upvotes as well. If there are no further objections, I'll go ahead and start adding the eyepiece tag to the ...

Is a charged-coupled-devices tag okay? If so, what would be good usage guidance for it?

The only problem with the tag as-is is that it doesn't appear when you search for "CCD" :-) Also, would a future "CMOS" tag be appropriate, or would an all-encompassing "...

What is the best way to tag questions about Xuntian, the Chinese Survey Space Telescope?

Tag it with [csst], as this tag already exists. We have tags for specific telescopes that use the name of the telescope or mission: Eg [gaia] or [chandra]. Hubble is treated differently, as [hubble-...

One tag for LIGO, Virgo and KAGRA or three, or none?

I suggest using the gravitational-wave-astronomy tag that hasn't really caught on yet. It seems to capture the case where the topic involves collaboration quite well.

I think that we have no good tags for solar-system-evolution or asteroid-formation or asteroid-evolution. Should we?

Be careful about the creation of new tags without user demand. We had a discussion about this a couple of years ago on Space Exploration: How is our tagging situation? What can we do to improve it? In ...

With +4/-0 votes on my question and no comments or answers to the contrary, I've gone ahead and created the solar-system-evolution tag. I've added 14 questions so far, and about once a week I'll add ...
