Is anyone actually interested in the () tag? I saw 0 followers, and there are too many data formats to convert from/to for it to make sense to me. For one, why would one assume that a person who is interesting in conversion between video formats would also be interested in conversion between packaging file formats.

  • I think it's probably a useful clue to search engines. Otherwise I don't care.

There are currently 17 questions with either or . These two tags should be synonyms, by the way. All signs point at making the displayed name: Super User has the synonym in this direction; on both U&L and AU conversion has more uses; convert could connote ImageMagick's convert.

I don't see this tag as useful to subscribe to. I can sort of see a use case for it being the sole tag on a question: a question about conversion between two really exotic kinds of files, especially by a new user who doesn't have enough reputation to create a new tag. This tag is definitely useful for searches: if you're looking for a way to convert from a to a particular file format, [format] narrows the search a lot more than just [format].

  • Sounds good to me.
