Since Tags are so important in Discourse best practices, I believe we need at least the basic operations for managing them. And it seems like one that is missing is being able to merge one tag into another. For example, if users create both
#dogs, at some point the admin will want to consolidate these.
What I’d expect is that when I tell it to rename
#dogs it would say, “Tag already exists, do you want to merge this one in to that one?” instead of just denying the operation as it does currently.
As it stands it seems like I’d have to modify those topics one by one and finally delete the empty tag.
There is a related topic about synonyms, which is related to some degree.
