The says it means "Advanced Wireless Systems".

There are however only 13 question with this tag, and all except possibly two are written obviously thinking it's Amazon Web Services.

Option 1: Create , migrate any questions over, create and migrate those questions, delete as ambiguous.

Option 2: Create , migrate any questions over, re-describe as Amazon Web Services.

Option 3: Leave tag definitions alone, remove from questions related to Amazon Web Services.

Option 4: Do nothing.

I prefer options 1 and 2 (in that order). 3 seems unhelpful. 4 leaves a dozen questions apparently mis-tagged.

What think you all?

Removing a tag will not stop people from creating it again, anyone can add any tag (even if it does not exist) to a question. So option 1 and 3 will only work for a short while and then the tag will pop up again.

I prefer option 2, I think is associated more often with Amazon Web Services than with Advanced Wireless Services, but that may be the bubble I'm living in.

  • Ron's already moved it to advanced-wireless-services, and we shall see if AWS returns; I suspect you are correct.

  • @jonathanjo, there is a "shortcut" for tags. You can do [tag:advanced-wireless-services] to get a tag like Teun did in his answer, or a link like I have in my comment above.

  • The AWS tag absolutely should refer to Amazon-Web-Services... I tagged several questions with it to jump-start things May 4, 2021 at 23:44
