On this meta site, we have the tags and . These would appear to be redundant. Could we set one as a synonym of the other?

The tags that you mentioned are created way before people ever come up on meta (that is, by the system itself).

: To signify and figure out whether a certain genre of question is allowed.

: To figure out why questions are on/off-topic, why, and for discussions about including particular subjects and topics within the site.

They overlap, yes. But they're unique and their applications are broad... :)

    Your definitions are correct, and synonymous. The tags should be synonymous, they are on many metas. The predefined list of meta tags was made on the quick and never fixed. Jun 25 '15 at 14:44
