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

There is a fair amount of tag synonyms that are created via the child meta (in fact, looking at the tag synonyms page, the vast majority of the synonyms are done by the mods).


Why should the users that get a on their post not get the badge, just because they suggested the synonym in a different place?

Perhaps this badge should be awarded when a user has a post tagged and ?

Yet another symptom of the synonym-proposal mechanism being useless/nigh-invisible :P – Matthew Read Feb 6 '12 at 21:26
Trying to vote for obvious synonyms usually fails for lack of rep on that specific tag. More or less makes it a mod-only feature. – Bo Persson Feb 6 '12 at 22:31
