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. stackoverflow.com/questions/tagged/I-do-not-exist 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.
