Has anyone noticed that there is a distinct lack of consistency in the definitions of the same Tag, across the various sites under the Stack Exchange umbrella?
Cases in point:
- The definition of konqueror in Ask Ubuntu is different from that in Super User which, in turn, differs from that in Unix & Linux
- The definition of konsole in Stack Overflow, Unix & Linux, Ask Ubuntu and Super User
Taking konsole as an example:
On Super User the excerpt is "Terminal emulator for the K Desktop Environment (KDE)" and the main definition is empty.
On Ask Ubuntu the excerpt is "Konsole is the terminal emulator for the K Desktop Environment." and the main definition is:
Konsole is an X terminal emulator for the KDE platform, allowing users to have a convenient way to use the command line. Aside from providing a way to use a powerful shell, Konsole also offers features that make it easier or more pleasurable to work in the command line, such as profile management, scrollback, and color schemes, including translucency for effects.
X Terminal emulator Makes using the command line easier Use different profiles for different tasks Set scrollback limit and save contents to file Click on links to open in user's default web browser Open current path in user's file manager Translucent background available when desktop effects are enabled
There are many more... emacs for example.
Now I understand that, obviously, in some forums the same word may actually possess a different meaning, but where it is obviously the same word/definition pair, is there not a way of making them homogenous?
One may suggest to do it manually, but it is not that simple as some peer reviewers will not accept certain definitions. I have tried and failed. As the reviewers are different people, we end up with a "left hand not knowing what the right hand is doing" situation.
Maybe it is my OCD but it is starting to get on my nerves...
