Term:
nouns {pl}

So far, some plural nouns were tagged with the abbreviation {pl}, and other not. For the purposes of clarity and uniformity I suggest that plural nouns have the tag {pl}. This practice is already well established in the EN-CR dictionary.

Please see the guidelines, section 7, PLURAL / SINGULAR TAGS:
For nouns in languages without grammatical gender, such as English, Hungarian or Turkish, use {pl} and {sg} in the respective field to denote plural or singular if unusual or different from the grammatical number in the other language.

Thank you. I was familiar with that guideline. But the situation is that some contributors prefer to tag each plural noun with {pl}. I think it's clearer meaning of the word when the noun is tagged with {pl}.

As I mentioned, it is already common practice in Croatian dictionary. A few examples:
http://enhr.contribute.dict.cc/?action=show-history&id=1140747
http://enhr.contribute.dict.cc/?action=show-history&id=1265227
http://enhr.contribute.dict.cc/?action=show-history&id=122816
http://enhr.contribute.dict.cc/?action=show-history&id=205097
http://enhr.contribute.dict.cc/?action=show-history&id=673307

It also becomes a practice in Serbian:
http://ensr.contribute.dict.cc/?action=show-history&id=570764
http://ensr.contribute.dict.cc/?action=show-history&id=553826
http://ensr.contribute.dict.cc/?action=show-history&id=491918
http://ensr.contribute.dict.cc/?action=show-history&id=490070

The difference between written guideline and practice creates difficulties in voting and nonuniformity of the final translations. That's why I want to know the views of other contributors, and that we have one clear way of tagging.
