While browsing the unpopular end of http://stackoverflow.com/tags?tab=popular to see if there were any tags that probably shouldn't be, I was shocked that zombie was empty. Surely there are lots of questions on there about zombie processes, right?
Could the display in
/tags be changed to better handle synonyms?
- Suppress display of synonyms altogether; searching displays the master tag as when tagging questions. (Problem because it's useful to also have a straight textual search for tags instead of being second-guessed.)
- Display synonyms on equal footing as the master tag; zombie and zombie-process both have × 49 displayed next to them. (Probably too confusing if both are visible.)
- Add some other indicator that slave tags are synonyms, e.g., (s).
- Sort by popularity then synonymy; this would be less of a problem in
/tagsif all the synonyms were clumped together, though without an indicator it might be confusing at the intersection point.
