Let's talk about the problems surrounding vue.js and vuejs2 tags

I spend a fair amount of time looking at answers / questions specifically about Vue and the reoccurring trend is that more often then not questions are tagged using Vue 1.x tag which is&nbsp;<a href="https://stackoverflow.com/questions/tagged/vue.js" target="_blank">vue.js</a>.Whereas they actually meant to tag these questions as&nbsp;<a href="https://stackoverflow.com/questions/tagged/vuejs2" target="_blank">vuejs2</a>, as I post this the last three questions have both tags added inside&nbsp;<a href="https://stackoverflow.com/questions/tagged/vuejs2" target="_blank">vuejs2</a>:

I spend a fair amount of time looking at answers / questions specifically about Vue and the reoccurring trend is that more often then not questions are tagged using Vue 1.x tag which is vue.js.Whereas they actually meant to tag these questions as vuejs2, as I post this the last three questions have both tags added inside vuejs2:

In the vue.js we have another random nuxt.js question tagged with Vue.1x which is the wrong tag:

Error while Deploying nodejs application with NUXT and Vue on Azure Web Application

This even has 2.0 in the title but still has only vue.js:

Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property 'push' of undefined VUE 2.0

I could go on to post more but if you've answered questions in this tag more often then not one of the first actions you'll do when answering a question is to re-tag it with the correct tag or remove incorrect tagging. Another issue is when people post either 1.x or 2.x answers to either tag and or have to instantly clarify which version there actually using on occasion if the code snippets are not obvious.

I suppose I just wanted to highlight this and maybe open a conversation about how we might be able to change it so people are less likely to tag there questions incorrectly and to avoid providing incorrect answers.

One way I've thought of solving this could be by changing the tags to be more explicit like for example vuejs1 and vuejs2 where the targeted framework has to be appended to the tag name.

vue.js has 14.9k watchers and 20k questions and vuejs2 has 4.1k watchers and 9.1k questions.

The current guidelines for each tag are that all questions specifically targeted towards vue 1.x are tagged with vue.js and specifically vue 2.x questions are tagged as vuejs2. The wordage for both tags makes it sound like they are not supposed to co-exist whatsoever.

Related is this merge Merge tags: [vuejs] [vue.js] [vuejs2] [vue2] which left us with these two tags.

Nuxt.js: a Minimalist Framework for Creating Universal Vue.js Apps

In this article, you'll learn how we can take advantage of Nuxt.js to build server-rendered JavaScript applications with Vue.js. Learn how to use its generate command to generate static files for our pages, and deploy them quickly via a service like Firebase Hosting.

Nuxt.js cheat sheet

Nuxt.js is a higher-level framework that builds on top of Vue. It simplifies the development of universal or single page Vue apps. Nuxt.js is not a server side framework. It runs on the servers. It renders the first page and after the first page is renderd, the Vue.js app takes over.
