The tag (and the tag) don't have a tag wiki, and I'm wondering how they're meant to be used. Are they supposed to be used on questions on how to replace things? Are those even needed?


1 Answer 1


At the time of writing this there are 29 questions tagged replacements and 82 questions tagged replace.

I find these tags are being used in the following ways:

  • Indication that a replacement occurred (circumstantial clarification)
  • Request for instruction on how to replace (used in the verb sense here)
  • Assessment of the suitability/compatibility of replacement parts

I don't think the first two use cases warrant a separate tag; the latter can be covered by a more specific categorization such as (which isn't used enough by the look of things).
