Suggesting to swap tag [kyiv] and its synonym [kiev]

Update: renaming to Kyiv now that Wikipedia is updated I am going to decline this request as Kiev is still a much more common spelling than Kyiv. Tags don't necessarily have to follow the official ...

On the new(ish) [drugs] tag

Not all non-medical drugs are illegal. For example, alcohol is generally legal, and is popular enough to get its own tag. Tobacco is similarly legal (though without the tag), and marijuana is legal ...

Suggesting to swap tag [kyiv] and its synonym [kiev]

Request: un-synonym-ize "clothing" and "footwear" tags

I actually disagree with this for a couple reasons. This stack exchange is about travel. Clothing is secondary to travel. For a large percentage of the questions, the question is about clothing to be ...

Should "drinking" be synonym for "nightlife" or "alcohol" (or something else)?

I am not convinced 'drinking' should be a synonym at all but am certain it should not be a synonym of nightlife. Looking at all the questions tagged alcohol (I can't differentiate whether that was ...

Merge "left-luggage" and "luggage-storage" tags

Do we need both tags "event travel" and "events"?

I agree they should be merged. In addition, I think the tag "event-based-effects" should be renamed "incident-based-effects" to make it more distinct.

Should "drinking" be synonym for "nightlife" or "alcohol" (or something else)?

I don't know about night life, but drinking as a synonym for alcohol seems to me as arbitrary and unjustified as if we change "eating" into a synonym for "pizza".

Is "denied-entry" a synonym of "denial-of-entry"?

Done. I deleted denied-entry, replaced it with denial-of-entry, and made the first a synonym of the second. Thank you for bringing this up. Keep up the good work.

vaccination as well as health does not seem necessary to me at this time. Nor a separation of health into 'administrative' and say 'physical/mental' aspects. So what is left basically would be ...

Adding "delta" as a synonyme for "delta-air-lines"

Inconsistent tag naming for insurance

I'll debate against using the "travel-" prefix. This is a travel site and the domain is travel.stackexchange.com. I think that makes travel implicit and there's no need for explicit prefixes, like ...
