# Replace sam and bam tags with a single sam-or-bam tag

The discussion in the recent suggestion to make and synonyms seems inconclusive with users falling on either side of the argument.

I propose we instead remove both tags and create , or , or something along those lines that would cover both. We can then make both and synonyms of and thereby avoid the cognitive dissonance of having a question about sam be tagged as bam or vice versa while still having the benefit of a single tag for these obviously related subjects.

Thoughts?

• Would a "sam-or-bam" tag automatically be proposed when a user types "sam" or "bam"? – bli Jun 8 '17 at 11:28
• @bli Yes. If the tag has been created, typing any part of it would show the sam-or-bam as an option. – terdon Jun 8 '17 at 11:29
