    … and I still want a tag for non-git vcs discussions.

    1. 9

      Renamed git to vcs

      1. 1

        Typo for cvs?

          Version Control System.

        2. 1

          Thanks. Not sure I wanted a rename instead of a new tag, but I’ll take what I can get.

          Ok, done.

          1. 1

            Woo hoo! Thank you @jcs!

            I thought you wanted to rename Bitcoin project itself… then I was like, why/how he would? Can you change the title to ‘Rename “bitcoin” tag to “cryptocurrency”’?

            1. 2

              Sorry, I can no longer edit the title.

            2. 2

              That was a much better idea than my leaving doofy descriptions on stories, thank you.

                Is ‘altcurrencies’ ok or are they all pretty much crypto currencies?

                1. 4

                  Every currency that would ever be discussed here is cryptographic. Unless you want the category to include World of Warcraft gold… which would make sense if this were a forum about economics (although the IRS distinguishes WoW gold from bitcoin, it’s not on the basis of the non-use of cryptography), but it’s not, and there’s very likely nothing interesting to say about game currencies from a technical perspective.
