I've just realised I went and created a large number of multi-word tags that don't separate their words with dashes the way multi-word tags are supposed to. Examples include:

proofofstake, which should be proof-of-stake
proofofwork, which should be proof-of-work
performanceoptimisation, which should be performance-optimisation
contractdesign, which should be contract-design
denialofservice, which should be denial-of-service

Of course, I don't have enough reputation to correct the tags or create the appropriate tag synonyms. What should I do?

No problem. I renamed the tags.

There are no synonyms needed for this use case. Text completion will show users the correct tags.


  • Did you actually create further Tags with correct names, rather than renaming the bad Tags? If so, how did you rename them?

    As a Moderator, I have the ability to rename tags. When there is larger tag cleanup, that is typically preferable to manually re-tagging each questions so it doesn't bump all those questions to the top of the 'activity' page. Jan 21, 2016 at 14:09
