I hope this is the correct place to ask for a new tag synonym for Stack Overflow.
I discovered this a few days ago and expected to be able to fix it myself when I reached the mythical 2,500 reputation, but alas, there are apparently additional constraints.
- .deb has 7 questions ever, 4 this year, 2 subscribers, top user 8 score; no wiki description.
- deb has 44 questions ever, 33 this year, top user 10 score.
I also note the general pattern; there are many synonym mappings of the form [.ext] -> [ext]; perhaps this should be automated, or at least audited systematically.
I was hoping there would be a way for a low-reputation user to propose a synonym and have it vetted by a moderator, perhaps even as a mechanism to improve one's score. Surely this could not be the loophole the spammers have been waiting for.
