The tag name is oxymoronic: a belt is not a chain!

It makes sense to me to merge it with the simpler and more accurate .

Can this be done? How?

  • Belt drive as a tag makes more sense to me.

  • Yes, belt-drive is obviously more correct, and now it's fixed.

Yes, we can do this. How is to post on meta (like you just did), wait for people to have a chance to comment on your proposal, then one of the moderators makes it happen.

There's also a method that high-rep users can use to create a tag synonym, but we really don't have enough users with the rep, so a meta post and moderator intervention is the way to go.

Update: done

I looked at it, and somehow the synonym was backwards with everything being automatically rewritten as . I reversed the synonym and merged the tags so that everything is now.

  • Thanks @freiheit. Looks like I am on the right track.
