We currently have two Meta tags regarding community challenges:

The main site equivalent of these tags are also synonymized, which will eventually be done here as well. However, does it make sense to also synonymize them with a new Meta tag called , which is also a main site tag? The advantage here, though, is that no one can misuse the tags since programming questions don't exist here. But it just seems odd to have the exact same set of tags.

What do you think?

Note: The tag doesn't apply here. That tag is only for general site challenges, not regular community programming challenges.

It started with , in this post (the rock-paper-scissors-lizard-spock challenge). Then it was used pretty much every week of December 2013 when a new meta post came up for voting on what the next challenge should be.

Then we "rebooted" the thing after taking a break, and since it no longer was over-the-weekend we came up with .

came after, to rule them all.

The master tag can only be the more generic tag, in my opinion. It was created for that purpose.
