should be synonymized into as they are fundamentally the same and non-aplhanumerics-or-hyphens should be avoided in tag names whenever possible.

  • $\begingroup$ @iKlsR It depends on the site; on AU tag synonym requests were often tagged as feature requests and left as such. $\endgroup$ – hexafraction May 23 '13 at 21:07

Don't think it should be synonymized. The correct form should be agreed on and left to rule. Not any typing error/off standard is reason for a synonym. They are basically the same thing minus a period (.), we should focus on keeping tags clean and maintainable.

I think they should be synonymized. Otherwise, you'd have two tags that mean the same thing instead of one tag that the other points at, which is messier. Personally, I'd prefer to see synonymized into ; it looks nicer.

    $\begingroup$ @Gwenn: The advantage to synonymizing is that if someone starts typing ".blend", then they will see the "blend-files" tag in the choices. $\endgroup$ – El'endia Starman May 24 '13 at 4:36
