Fixing the filament tags

Should the "quality" tag be disambiguated?

"print-quality" is a better (more specific) tag than "quality", but I don't think we should have a "printer-quality" tag. While discussions about print quality and how to improve it can be reasonably ...

Merge [printing-powder] and [metal-powder] tags?

In my opinion it should not. There is a distinction. If someone said powder printing to me, I would think of powder + glue printers. Metal powder is pulverized metal that are bound with an insanely ...

Why are there both [heatbed] and [heated-bed] tags?

I'm not sure, but I think they came about before anyone had the authority to suggest synonyms. I went ahead and created a synonym for heatbed and heated-bed and merged the questions. I'll do the same ...

Naming convention for tags with CamelCase or Pre-Fix

Looking at other SE sites, the most common approach seems to make everything lowercase (including names and trademarks) and using hyphens whenever there would be a space or hyphen in normal usage. As ...

DIY-3d-printers & specific model of printer kits disjunction!

To me, the dividing line between "DIY" and "not DIY" is who you deal with if a part is defective when you get it. If you're contacting different vendors for a jammed bearing, a miswired stepper motor,...

Renaming the tag [folgertechft-5] to separate company from model

Most of our other tags have a similar naming schedule: aneta8, aneta6, aneta2. Once you fix that for 1, you need to do all. I do not think that will be necessary. Furthermore, you can find the tag by ...

Should we merge tag "bed" and "build-plate"?

It should not be about merging of tags, rather we should come up with a proper terminology to identify the correct parts of the "build platform". Basically, every printer consists of a frame ...

Should we merge tag "bed" and "build-plate"?
