Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

With reference to the question Certain tags are totally empty when you select them?, I just spotted that there are some empty tags, and , which don't have any questions under them. I tried proposing a tag synonym that would remap to , but it doesn't work - any ideas please?

The empty tags will be removed automatically after 24 hours by the system, don't worry about them – Yi Jiang Nov 17 '11 at 2:20
Where did you see those tags? Browsing to non existent tag will always bring empty page e.g. however those tags won't appear anywhere. – Shadow Wizard Nov 17 '11 at 10:23

As Yi noted, tags with no questions get deleted automatically after a bit. Synonyms should really only be made for tags that are useful; crap questions should be closed or fixed and not retagged.
