# Maximum tag length and tag for exponential time algorithms

I wanted to tag a question with exponential-time-algorithms and I got the error-message:

Oops! Your edit couldn't be submitted because:
* 'exponential-time-algorithms' exceeds maximum tag length of 24


So, I used the far less elegant tag exponential-algorithms.

Is there a way around the restriction of maximum tag length 24?
Do you have a better suggestion for the tag exponential-algorithms? I can think of exact-algorithms, but I don't like it too much because, by definition, an algorithm gives you a(n exact) solution to your problem (in the view that approximation algorithms solve a more relaxed version of the problem).

• I think "exact-algorithms" would be ok, too; it seems to be the standard term used in the field even though it makes little sense. Sep 6, 2010 at 17:36
• I flagged this post for moderator attention to ask moderators to merge and synonymize [exponential-algorithms] → [exp-time-algorithms]. Dec 11, 2010 at 18:32

How about exp-time ? this could be coupled with [algorithms], or could be coupled with cc.complexity-theory for discussions about EXP
