I suggest we drop the code names from all of the tags. Now that time has passed since their common usage, it looks incorrect to see 8.0apollo or 7.5mango. It is clear enough to mention just the number or wp8. I actually prefer the wpX.X syntax as most enthusiast podasts use that format as well. ADDITIONALLY: Since this post has started there has not been ...

I think having the manufacturers name is actually a good thing. The Android sister site seems to also do this and not have any synonyms e.g. https://android.stackexchange.com/tags/samsung-galaxy-s-3/synonyms and https://android.stackexchange.com/tags/htc-desire/synonyms While I can agree that for Lumia it is currently obvious that it is a Nokia, for other ...

Agreed. When merge tags is not so obvious which one will be the master. Probably someone just merge them and didn't realized that it had been changed.

I would suggest re-tagging all the appropriate questions to 8.0-apollo (which perhaps should be renamed to windows-phone-8 since that has the most votes) and then adding a wiki for windows-8.

I would prefer changing it to microsoft-lumia-640-xl as both Microsoft's website and Wikipedia mentions Lumia 640 XL as Microsoft Lumia 640 XL.

Tag has been renamed - might take a little while for the tag pages to update as this is pulled from caches :)

Yup.I am totally agree with your point. In fact I am tired of using nokia-lumia-535 tag for my Microsft Lumia 535. We should in fact change all the Nokia lumia tags and replace them by lumia tags. If not possible then, we should at least change the tag names for Lumia devices marked Microsoft. As far as I know there are only 12 devices marked Microsoft ...

Those have been done, although nothing appeared to be tagged with the Microsoft prefixed options

Given the consensus in the current tags, and the voting on Nokia is Superfluous in Lumia Tags, I'll reverse the synonym on lumia-520, and set up the other two...

I agree, I have nothing against it.

Actually we do need the codenames, but as probably as separate tags. For example MS is now making Windows Phone Blue available for testing to selected users. We still don't know if it's going to be Windows Phone 8.1 or if they are going to create some other name. The system needs to be flexible enough so it can accompany Microsoft's name changes and schemes....
