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

I don't think they are synonymous:

  • is meant for discussion/support issues about tag synonyms (i.e. how they work, what they are for, who can create them, ...).
  • is specifically for requesting a new synonym relationship

All tag synonym questions need not be synonym requests. (And I don't think would necessarily be appropriate for synonym requests.)

Then the tag wiki for tag-synonyms should be changed as it is frequently used for synonym requests and it is not clear from the tag wiki what it should be used for – ChrisWue Jan 12 '12 at 21:04
@ChrisWue: feel free to propose a better wording for it. – Mat Jan 12 '12 at 21:08
