Tag Acronyms

There's a tool in the ACP to automatically bulk replace all matching tags with another tag, but this isn't a permanent solution.
This doesn't even exist, but can be accomplished the the Advanced Tags & Prefixes application,

Say you have a forum where a lot of members are using the tag "art" and "artwork". Those are basically the same thing, right? Wouldn't it be nice to simply "auto-replace" all "artwork" tags with "art" or vice versa, the moment they are posted?

That's basically the gist of it. Similar to the acronym expansion functionality of IP.Seo, but for tags.

I've also seen hook here that "suggests" tags to users, which I think I might look into using. I'm not sure if this should be considered as a core functionality, but the way things are now, the tagging system can easily become chaotic and disorganized.

I mean, I still have a lot of members who fail to realize they must use commas to separate their tags.

Sorry, this actually does not exist without the use of a third party application.

Which, by the way, is an awesome application, but this further reinforces the point that IP.Board could really do with some improvements to the tagging system.
