I'm in agreement Peter. I think
string-methods sufficiently covers
split. Splitting an Org as you say is a rare event and is something I'd expect Salesforce to likely be heavily involved in supporting. In my view, the tag should be merged with
string-methods. At least I think that would be the proper way of handling it as opposed to using a synonym.
From quickly looking at questions tagged with
string, it could be argued that the majority of those questions are also about
string-methods as well. I don't know how many people that are currently active have sufficient votes/points on questions with those tags to vote on them. I have 8 in
string-methods and only 4 in
string. I believe it takes 5 to be eligible to vote for a synonym.
I don't know what it takes to do a merge. I'm confident one of our friendly moderators will pop in with an answer to that.
I now have the votes/points such that I've nominated
string-methods as a synonym for the
string tag. We now need 4 users with the votes/points who'll cast votes to approve it on the synonyms page. That should at least help clean up that tag for us.
It appears will still waiting for a mod to appear from the Dreamforce haze to provide some insight on what a "merge" is. From the mouse-over, I got the sense it had something to do with a synonym being merged, but with "what" it was being merged was unclear to me. Is it another synonym or another tag entirely? I didn't see an answer to that question.
