# Should tags be plural or singular?

As part of The Great Tagging Survey, I've noticed that the pluralisation of our tags is a bit inconsistent. The following lists all tags that refer to some kind of object that is dealt with in the corresponding challenges.

## Plural

This is probably not a huge deal, but I think it would be nicer if this was consistent. I don't know if devs can rename tags (although I think they can since they can also delete them), but maybe we want to at least set up a guideline for future tags?

# Whichever one sounds better

The tag roman-numeral would sound funny as this phrase is nearly always used in the plural. On the other hand, no one in his right mind would prefer markov-chains to markov-chain.

• +1. I think plurality it should be determined on a per-tag basis. – Alex A. Mar 25 '15 at 0:11

# Tags should be plural, please fix the existing ones if possible
