Questions tagged [tags]
Optimization vs Optimisation in tags
It took longer than I expected, but the first tag spelling optimization as optimisation has been introduced. I know this is an american-english versus british-english debate. However, google gives ...
Should tags be singular or plural?
Should we use solver or solvers? constraint or constraints? heuristic or heuristics? There is discussion of this on other SE sites and their metas, but no clear consensus as far as I can tell. ...
What should our tags look like?
related: Tag synonyms and descriptions Should the main tag for linear programming be lp or linear-programming? mip or milp or mixed-integer-programming? sp or stochastic-programming? Note: this is ...
What is the Soft Question tag?
What is the tag "Soft-Question" being used for? In this field, it certainly sounds like a pejorative. With no wiki guidance as to its use, would it be better to just remove this tag? It seems this ...
Should we have a custom tag for questions deviating from SE norms?
This is a spin-off of a meta discussion at How closely should we stick to Stack Exchange norms?. It came up in that discussion that some other SE sites use a "soft-question" tag for ...
Tag for military applications of OR
Since the field of Operations Research (OR) was (partly) spawned by WWII, I took the liberty of creating tag military for questions on military applications of OR. I assume there are no objections to ...
Blocklist [operations-research] tag
The tag [operations-research] is a site-name tag which does not appear to have any use and has no usage description. It is currently used on 8 questions, down from ...
How can we clear the backlog of tag usage guidance and wiki edits?
A good number of our tags have pending suggested edits, which at this point just means that people have written usage guidance and wiki entries for the tags. If I'm not mistaken, only people with 750 ...
Rename [logicaal-constraints] to [logical-constraints]
Just a spelling error: logicaal-constraints should be logical-constraints.
Retire unused tags?
Several tags were created in the past few days and have no questions: https://or.stackexchange.com/tags?tab=new I suspect these were created in error. For example, see optimi. Also, do we really need ...
Is there a tag for industry?
At the moment, Operations Research SE has tag academia and tag government. However, I find no tag for industry. Since there are several questions on operations research in industry, I propose that tag ...
Synonymise [tsp] and [traveling-salesman]
I've already seen the tsp tag on the site but not traveling-salesman. I think the least is to synonymize them. Similarly, we can do that for vrp and vehicle-routing. Please add an answer below ...
Synonymise [lp] and [linear-programming]
The site was launches just a few hours ago, so the tags are messy. I found the lp and linear-programming tags which are about exactly the same thing. LP is an abbreviation of linear programming, so I ...
"problem" in tags
Another tagging question: Should we include the word "problem" for classical problems? traveling-salesman vs. traveling-salesman-problem shortest-path vs. shortest-path-problem p-median vs. p-median-...
Synonymise [mixed-integer-programming] and [milp]
The tags mixed-integer-programming and milp have the same meaning, therefore I propose to synonymise of them. Also, note that there have been some arguments to also use mip. Please add an answer ...
Tagging questions related to Python-based packages
When tagging questions related to Python-based packages — such as cplex-python-api, cvxpy, pulp, pyomo — tag python is sometimes included and sometimes not. It would be nice to have a policy on this. ...
Synonymise [vrp] and [vehicle-routing]
vrp = vehicle routing problem and the community has decided not to allow "-problem" in tags, so I propose these tags to be synonymized with master the vehicle-routing tag.
What is the "People" tag?
There has been one use of the people tag. It currently has zero watchers. That one question seems to solicit answers with parent-child pairs that both work(ed) in Operations Research. What is this ...
Tag for academia
At the moment, Operations Research SE has tag academic. Since a single adjective a poor name for a tag makes, I propose that the tag be renamed academia.
