For requests to replace one tag with another existing tag. It also applies to requests that one tag should be merged into another, or simply abandoned.

This tag denotes a request for help to retag a set of questions. Note that the moderator capacity of merging tags is simply an extended application of retagging, and thus requesting that one tag be merged into another is simply a different flavor of retag request.

A completed retag request often but not always results in the creation of a tag synonym. You can add the tag if you want the retag to be permanent.

Also use either of these required tags:

  • , if the request is indisputable and/or demands moderator assistance
  • , to discuss how to retag the set of questions, if at all
