This tag, , is rather ugly, and has at least three issues:

  1. Mis-spelt - missing an "e"
  2. It is almost illegible (i.e. difficult to read)
  3. No hyphens - shouldn't it be hyphenated, like this: [automatic-bed-leveling]?

It only has two questions tagged with it (so far).

For reference, and consistency, see also this ancient question, Request to add a [bed leveling] tag - We don't have , nor , but we do have .

Therefore, I propose changing to .

Note: I don't believe that it should be abbreviated, or become an acronym, such as [abl], because no one would probably be able to find it (unless they already knew that it existed or it was made into a synonym)... but maybe I am wrong..? That is to say, it seems much more natural to start typing "autom..." when looking for a tag relating to automatic bed leveling - I certainly would not type "abl" if looking for the tag.

I have added and retagged the two questions that were using the incorrectly spelt .

I have also added a synonym .

  • $\begingroup$ Nice work! I even didn't know we had an automatic bed levelling tag, no wonder it's just 2 tagged questions... You always see the bed-levelling tag being used. Makes me wonder, maybe we should revisit many questions and change the tag when automatic levelling is meant in the question. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @0scar - One question is, should a question about auto-bed levelling be tagged with both bed-leveling and auto-bed-leveling tags? The more you think about it, the more ramifications or issues you end up thinking about. The most obvious one is: You'll end up having to look up both tags. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @Greenonline 228 is doable ;-) and not both tags, it may be better to introduce a automatic tag instead $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @0scar - if we are thinking about having a question tagged with both an automatic (prefix tag) and bed-leveling tags, then we had just as well stick with tagging with both automatic-bed-leveling and bed-leveling tags - because the end result would be the same: two tags. I don't think that having two tags is necessarily a bad idea... automatic-bed-leveling would just end up being a subset of bed-leveling. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @Greenonline Tags are limited per question, so it is best to not have to multiple tag questions. It is better for the regulars to retag bed-levelling to automatic-bed-levelling when appropriate. $\endgroup$
