Is there a reason for the tag? I just noticed it now—it has 9 questions, which appear to be at a fairly wide variety of levels of geometry, and none of which are tagged with the much-more-often-used tag. Am I missing something here?

  • $\begingroup$ Is it possible to change these 9 instances to "geometry" without too much trouble? I would support that. $\endgroup$ Jun 19, 2011 at 1:19
  • $\begingroup$ @Jim: Yes, a moderator can merge elementary-geometry into geometry to make that happen. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ Shouldn't this go on the huge tag merging and synonyms thread? $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ People in differential geometry think "geometry" means them. People in algebraic geometry think "geometry" means them. However, (elementary-geomety) will exclude these, I guess. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @GEdgar: If the point of elementary-geometry is just to exclude differential and algebraic geometry, then I'm definitely against having the tag at all. $\endgroup$
