Could moderators please move "Soteriology" as a tag-synonym for "Salvation"?

Or perhaps, could explanations be given (in tag descriptions) showing how these tags are different and how they should be used?

Tags should always use the "industry standard" technical terms. In this case would be the best candidate for the tag. Anything else that people frequently tend to come up with should be synonyms of the technical term.

I have gone ahead and merged into . For future reference, you or anyone else that wants to suggest synonyms can do so from this page, after which they can be voted on and approved by a couple other community members or a moderator. The tag descriptions of course can be edited at any time by almost anybody with a modicum of reputation.

  • Caleb - It is not true that anyone can suggest tag-synonyms. There is a restriction on this - regardless of reputation - or else I would have been doing this a long time ago. Jun 30, 2017 at 16:55
  • @elikakohen The tag suggestion priv is given at 1250 rep. By anyone I meant this is not a moderator only thing.

  • It does require that much reputation. But it ALSO requires 5 reputation in that tag, (which isn't possible if it is a new tag). Or perhaps it is 5 reputation in moderating that tag?? It seems that even I cannot propose synonyms for tags that I have a lot of reputation in. Jun 30, 2017 at 17:54
