On the page for the “create tag synonyms” privilege, which is otherwise quite thorough, the requirement that one have a tag score of 5 in that tag is not mentioned. I propose that this information be added.

I assume that this information is not provided there in the FAQ because it is already provided on the page where you create a tag synonym, which is exactly where the FAQ leaves off. For example, the homework tag. Do you still think it makes sense to risk over-complicating the FAQ entry? – Cody Gray Mar 21 '12 at 2:35
Well, my personal perspective is that I saw the need for a particular tag synonym (a minor enough one that I didn't want to bother MSO), so I carefully read the privilege page, and then set about working towards 2500 rep, and then found I couldn't create/suggest the synonym, which was a disappointing surprise. Knowing that I didn't have the privilege, I didn't see any reason at the time that I should visit the specific page (or maybe I did and, yes, missed the text — I don't recall). – Kevin Reid Mar 21 '12 at 11:36
