The first tags use pluar form like hidden-services. I propose to use singular form like hidden-service for all tags.

I disagree, I think all tags should be plural (eg. ). This is pretty standard.

For example, look at the about page; the tag examples are plural there. Or look at the tags on other popular sites (eg. TeX.SE)... they're mostly plural.

Also, it just makes sense. A tag (probably) contains multiple questions; not a single one. A tag should read like: "questions about " not "a question about a ".

As Hiroto pointed out, they should be singular when they're about a specific thing (not a collection) that doesn't really have plurality, eg. (that tag is obviously not a good idea for other reasons... it's kind of a given).

    Plural for collections of things. The only time they're singular is when they are about a specific object (e.g. tor or google-chrome)

  • Oops, I accidentally created the "bridge" tag singular. How can I fix this?
