I'd guess that the questions tagged divisors+nt.number-theory are all - or at least most of them - tagged incorrectly.
At the moment there are 7 such questions.
3  The Wendt binomial circulant determinant $W_n$ can be defined quite simply as a resultant: $$W_n = \operatorname{res}(x^n-1, (x+1)^n-1).$$ Truer to its name, one may also define it as the determinant $\det(A)$ of the circulant matrix with entries $A_{i,j} = \binom{n}{\lvert i-j\rvert}$. The We...

7  After a few computations in wolfram alpha about the divisor function for some values of $n$ to look the behavior of $\sigma_x(n)\bmod n$ for $\,n=6,\,$ i got this result : $\sigma_x(6)=0 \bmod 6$ for $x$ odd and 2 mod 6 if $x$ is even Edit:01 :${\sigma}_x(n) =\sum_{d|n} d^x$ is the sum divisor ...

0  Edit 01:In order to look divisibility among power divisor function where i would like to know if there a such integer $n>1$ with y coprime to $x$ then we have: :$\sigma_y(n)\bmod \sigma_x(n)=0$, by wolfram alpha i have got no integer n>1 satisfies the equation $\sigma_y(n)\bmod \sigma_x(n)=0$ ...

1  Really i'm interesting to check solutions of equations which it is related to sum divisor function .I accrossed the below equation which i got only one integer solution using wolfram alpha as shown here. My question here: Is $n=5$ the only integer satisfy the equation :$\sigma((n-1)!+1))=\sig... -2  This question is related to my question here , I w'd like to check if$n \geq 1:\sigma(n!-1) $never be prime according to some computations which i did in wolfram alpha to come up with parity of sum power divisor function at$n!-1$for some integer$n$i observed that$\sigma(n!-1)\bmod 10 $at ... 6  I am looking for pairs of positive integers$(m,n)$such that$ \sigma(n!-1) =m^2$, where$\sigma$is the sum of divisors function. Examples occur with$(m,n)=(12,5),(1,2)$. Question: Are there others? 3  It is a result of Carmichael that for any integer$n > 12$, the Fibonacci number$F_n$has at least one primitive divisor, that is, a prime factor$p$such that$p$does not divide any$F_m$with$1 \leq m < n\$. Indeed, a more general result for all Lucas and Lehmer sequences has been proven by B...

I suppose some users simply do not notice the tag-excerpt. 5:26 PM
0  I suggest to rename the tag divisors in a way which distinguishes it more clearly from divisor-multiples. The tag-info for divisors clearly says: For questions related to divisors in the sense of algebraic geometry (Cartier divisors, Weil divisors and so on). For question on divisors in the ... in Homotopy Theory, 7 mins ago, by Martin Sleziak
What do you think the about renaming divisors tag in a way which makes clearer that it is not about divisibility of numbers? I have just made a post on meta about this. Any feedback there or in MO editors' lounge is more than welcome. 5:40 PM
I considered whether to make a separate question about this or whether to post it in the long thread as an answer.
But most likely there won't be that much discussion about this. (In general tag-related issues do not attract that much attention these days.)
Answers might be more comfortable way to suggest alternative names for the tag. But I suppose comments will suffice for this purpose.
