This is related to Should we merge [surveys] & [questionnaire]?

We have the following tags:

  • : 20 questions 23 questions
  • : 22 questions 19 questions

AFAIK the first, has a wiki tag that has been proposed recently approved. The second doesn't has a wiki tag yet.

I think that the proposedThe recently approved wiki tag for is:

A survey is a method of research consisting of a series of questions in order to gather data from participants. Use this tag when seeking recommendations for software that allows the building of questionnaires and the subsequent collection of data.

Remember to specify required functionality, for example variety of question types (multiple choice [dichotomous, *-polytomous], continuous scales, etc).

IMO the same apply to both sets of questions. Could these tags be merged?

    Not sure about this, some of the [forms] questions are about HTML forms and the like.

    @Rubén I don't see what would make it a meta tag, but it may be an ambiguous tag. It is certainly not a synonym of surveys. Jul 2, 2015 at 20:41

Instead of merge both tags do some tag clean up (already changed the tag for four questions) and propose a wiki tag for to try to help solving its ambiguity.
