Please merge the tags and .

I propose a more complex operation.

The issue is that the tags and have zero guidance becasue they are both trying to deal with vehicle-leasing and real-estate-leasing.

Those are two topics that shouldn't be combined. One involves issue such as maximum mileage, residual value, trade ins. The other has landlord-tenant issues, and security deposits.

As I write this of the 10 newest questions 5 are on apartments, the other 5 have to do with vehicles.

For the 5 of the first 15 are about real-estate, 9 are about vehicles An added complexity is that one of them is about leasing other equipment for a business.

Just combining the tags will not help becasue it will continue to mean that all the questions are jumbled together. Some questions currently have both tags. I believe that is because the taggers were happy with either existing tag.


Make two new tags

  • one for auto-leasing and
  • one for real-estate leasing.

Take all the questions in the two existing tags and put them in one of the new tags.

Complete the tag Wiki entries for these new tags

    Are you proposing we create 2 tags; vehicle-leasing and real-estate-leasing? If so agreed. We create the tags and move over the questions and then delete the old tags. – Dheer Aug 29 '18 at 12:29
  • added proposal to answer. – mhoran_psprep Aug 29 '18 at 13:15
  • The same thing occurred to me, but I thought it could be done in an independent operation even after we merge them. – GS - Apologise to Monica Aug 29 '18 at 20:26
  • Also, if we do this, we should blacklist the existing tags (lease/leasing), but I think that requires help from the StackExchange admins. – GS - Apologise to Monica Aug 29 '18 at 20:30
  • "leasing other equipment for a business" is easy to deal with -- business finance is off-topic – Ben Voigt Aug 31 '18 at 3:14
  • I think you can just go ahead and create the new tags and apply them, then we can figure out what to do with the existing tags. – GS - Apologise to Monica Aug 31 '18 at 12:39
  • @GaneshSittampalam I have just completed this. I have retained lease for generic questions not related to auto or real estate. However not able to create a tag synonym for lease as leasing. – Dheer Sep 17 '18 at 6:20

    @Dheer: Thanks! I have created the tag synonym. – GS - Apologise to Monica Sep 17 '18 at 7:41

Seems an obvious one, but as it's hard to undo I'll leave this out there for a bit for comments first.

I propose that we keep as that's the more widely used one, although I'd actually marginally prefer if it was an otherwise equal choice.
