Ok, I've read people's comments and made what I thought were necessary updates: The text was likely too long. As a result, I copied the detailed version from my original question post above to the species-identification tag info page. I now link to this info page directly in the Tag warning text. (Links do work here). I also removed #5 ("Indication of ...

I removed the entire conversation already as I don't think the comments were appropriate. You can find a bit more on my stance on the subject in this meta post from the opposite perspective. In short, I don't see any problem with having "nurse" in the name, and I don't see any medical advice in the answer. There is no problem here in my opinion. As a site ...

My suggestion: The Biosphere

How about calling the chat room The Synapse [where info is transmitted]

Thanks for the report. I have found and fixed the issue - there was a lookup table that was out of sync for just the biology database.

How about calling the chat room Cross Talk [Where channels interact, for the better or worse :)]

I edited the tag. Thanks for notifying.

Mods can unfreeze a chatroom. The mod would do so from the "access" tab of the room's overview page (accessed via the "info" link).

Oops, thanks for spotting this mistake and informing us. I merged the two tags, the now unused misspelled tag will be automatically removed by the system tomorrow night.

Done. I renamed the misspelt tag with the correct term.

I have synonymized replication with dna-replication (master).


4

I have merged questions tagged with inheritance with genetics. Also, I have synonymized inheritance with genetics (master tag).


3

I merged both tags to the british spelling (which was the more common one) and created a synonym.

If you message user @Floern on the SEBotics chatroom about the @GenericBot and ask about the chatroom antifreeze feature, your chatroom will live eternally.

Your activity relating this issue has escaped my notice - my apologies. I merged animal with zoology. The effects may take a while to become visible because of caching.

I've merged the two tags, I didn't create a synonym as I don't think this would provide any advantage. olfaction will be the only choice presented to users.

I've just had a look at the tags you mentioned and can't seem to reproduce your problem: conservation-biology shows 4 questions in the tag list and has 4 questions on the tag page. entomology shows 59 questions in the tag list and has 59 questions on the tag page. ecology shows 43 questions in the tag list and has 43 questions on the tag page. Are you ...

You don't have to bother with suggesting synonyms that way, the requirements are so high that it is almost impossible to have a community-created tag synonym on a beta site. I've created the synonym now and merged the tags.

I have de-synonymized the vision and eyes tags. Honesty, I do not know why, how and when the synomyzation happened. The vision tag is more appropriate for questions on visual function, physiology and neuroscience. Questions regarding how the brain interprets information from the eyes. Consider using the "eyes" tag for discussion of eye anatomy, ...

In reference to Darwin's famous quote, what about: The Entangled Bank or Darwin's Entangled Bank As reference, this is from the last paragraph of The Origin of Species: It is interesting to contemplate an entangled bank, clothed with many plants of many kinds, with birds singing on the bushes, with various insects flitting about, and with worms ...

Admittedly, this is very similar to WYSIWYG's suggestion, but what about: The Biome

I have just pushed a fix to give the logo a lighter background color, so you have a chance of seeing it. This will go out with the next chat build (some time today). Thanks for pointing it out!

Can I also point out it can be used to make much better tables than anything else we have? I think we are limiting MathJax too much if we think of it solely in terms of equations. I just discovered it was active last night and used it to make the table here: Factor causing Methicilin-resistance in MRSA? If you look at the edits, you can see the ascii ...
