# Should the (block-design) tag be removed?

I noticed for the first time today that there is a (block-design) tag, with no description and 12 questions. It seems that this tag is completely redundant, as there is already a (combinatorial-designs) tag (which does have a description, 154 questions, and is the exact same thing). Should this tag be removed/merged?

(This is my first post on meta so I don't know if I'm phrasing this question correctly. Any feedback is appreciated.)

• It sounds like we will make a synonym then. However, the convention seems to be using plural forms of nouns in tag names, in which case I guess we would remove all block-design tags, and create the synonym block-designs $\to$ combinatorial-designs, to keep with that convention. (I can't decide if I should suggest this in an answer, or just keep the conversation under this post) – pjs36 Mar 31 '18 at 1:24
