chinese_new_year -> lunar_new_year

Posted under Tags

With how similar the motifs are between cultures (paper lanterns, red themes, fireworks, red and gold, talismans, etc.), I think I'd prefer if the alias were reversed and the tag were lunar new year. There are other tags for things that distinguish a LNY celebration as being more one culture vs. another, e.g., kadomatsu.

I only read half of the wiki when I made the request apparently.

mass update chinese_new_year -> lunar_new_year

should be the most appropriate here I think.

I don't know how you think a mass update is the best thing to do here.
It should be an alias, just as NNT said.
Changing my vote into a downvote too, as long as it's not an alias.

It should either be an alias from cny to lny or from lny to cny depending on how we want to name it. Making it a mass update from lny to cny does nothing (lny is empty) and from cny to lny just makes every cny post have two tags with 100% overlap (not useful).

The initial utility alias from lny to cny was fine. Aliasing cny to lny might be more controversial though it would be better IMO.

BUR #14732 has been rejected.

create alias chinese_new_year -> lunar_new_year

Just gonna submit the two different aliases for voting. Next time please don't edit BURs after people have voted on them, otherwise nobody can tell what's going on.

Understandable... although if BURs were not meant to be editable once votes have been made then why is it not the case? Could I do a feature request for this?

Sometimes there are minor issues that need to be fixed but the point of the BUR remains. Changing the BUR to something completely different is a different story.

I (just vaguely, hopefully fully over time) get it now... I have to admit I am not a kind of person who take time to understand the rules first and then follow them. It had already screwed me various times in my real life but I could not (and do not know how to) fix it myself...
