We should do some tag maintenance, especially regarding printers to make them easier to read. Use an answer to propose a change, merge or split. Discussions for each change should go into the comments of each change.

Some things are easier than others:

  • Renaming a tag can be done with mod tools.
  • Alias/Synonyms are reasonably quick, often follow along renaming
  • Some tags need manual (separation). Sifting through what is and what isn't this tag has to be done to separate the stuff. It can be noisy to the front site but has to be done.

    $\begingroup$ Rename to the actual product name, so "ultimaker-cura". The slicer is called "Ultimaker Cura" not Cura, it changed from Cura to Ultimaker Cura a while ago. So the Cura tag should be renamed to "ultimaker-cura". $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @0scar, that does make sense... but it also means we have to rename, or add new synonyms each time someone buys Cura... $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ An alias/synonym would make "type in Cura, get it set to Ultimaker-Cura" automatically. Often, renaming leaves behind an alias/synonym automagically. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ I've left a comment to see if the user can tell us which printer it is. The user still visits from time to time. We can't really tell from the date. Which models were available at the time of writing? It can't be #3, see Wikipedia $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Just thought, what happens if it is an issue common to all Ultimaker printers? We tag all of the printers? $\endgroup$

    Aug 31 '19 at 9:30
  • $\begingroup$ in those cases one could possibly tag the manufactuer, but up to now, I have only seen machine specific ones. $\endgroup$

    Aug 31 '19 at 9:31
  • $\begingroup$ I've just noticed, in the question is says "ulmaker original +". So which one is that? Is that different from original, or 2, or 2+. Maybe it deserves it's own tag? Strangely, it is not listed in the Wikipedia products section, although google comes up with valid product pages, even on the Ultimaker site. Confusing! $\endgroup$

We have a lot of questions tagged . Some concearn the , one the , I think I have seen at least one .

Should we split it? Should we weed out those that use but mean instead, and make that tag?

Filled-PLA

Status: TBD

Type: TBD: Alias/Synonym or Rename

  1. (current) reasonably gets the point across
  2. would be a good synonym or alternate name
  3. seems to be used synonymously but could be understood as a master-term for and too.

Printer manufacturer: Creality

Status: Done

Note that the tag for this manufacturer does not exist, printers are listed solely by the printer model type/name: , , and .

In the light of FlashForge and Ultimaker, shouldn't the manufacturer be included (prefixed) in the tag?

$\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ technically, yes, but we can't keep a tag if we have no question with it. We'd need a question that has at least 2 printers targeted to tag creality or one about the company. $\endgroup$

    Aug 31 '19 at 20:45
  • $\begingroup$ @Trish I cannot follow you, all 4 tags for printer models exist and could be prefixed with creality-..., I'm not in favor of adding the tag creality unless there are questions for it. As a matter of fact it should already have been created and used for all listed models. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ Hmmm... It would start to make the tags twice the length. On the other hand, having the makers name in the tag would avoid this issue, i.e. it ("Creality") would not need to be repeated in the question text itself. $\endgroup$
