Apparently this has come to bite our behinds. is again used for either the optical disk and the change directory command. I propose renaming [cd] to [cd-command] and re-tag whatever isn't about the command with their appropriates tags.

    tbh is having a category for the cd command really a good idea anyways? Wouldn't that be basically a bash or zsh (or whatever their shell is) question? Also, it seems like cd is too short of a name to be unique anyways so this is kind of inevitable. Seems cdrom is more along the lines people are thinking of and would be hard to confuse with a shell built-in.

    @Bratchley cdrom does not work for all compact disk related cases, because some are related to CDs including audio CDs. I notice that the same applies to data-cd; Not sure we need a tag compact-disk, though... Feb 4, 2015 at 18:44

    optical-disc might be a better tag, unless we want different tags for data dvds, and data blu-rays. Or cdrom would be an ok tag, and typing cd would pop it up as an autocompletion. Jan 31, 2015 at 3:41

I fixed a handful of other mistaggings in , moved the rest to , and put in a request to blacklist


/cdrom would be a better tag than /data-cd, I think. Typing cd would pop it up as an autocompletion, so people would discover it automatically.

Or /optical-disc would cover data dvds and data blu-rays, too. We don't need or want different tags for those, do we? Tags that are too specific mean too many tags.
