What is the difference between (25 questions) and (19 questions) tags?

Neither of above have tag wiki, a handful of questions I randomly picked appear to use these as freely interchangeable.


Per feedback received so far, please merge mentioned tags, and make them synonyms.

    Looks like they should be synonyms at the very least.

  • @YannisRizos thanks! While I have your attention, could you please take a look at "static" tag cleanup? There seem to be a handful PHP questions worth re-tagging from static to something else

Good question, and I agree with ChrisF's comment about creating the synonym.

FWIW, I just tried to create the synonym, but I don't have a tag score of 5 on either one.


They definitely should be synonyms.

Honestly, I'm not a huge fan of synonyms if they could be merged and these could.
