Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 134 Stack Exchange communities.

As mentioned in this other meta question I just raised, I had some issues with the tag synonym process earlier.

Currently, a user can only recommend or vote on a tag synonym if they have a 'Score of 5' in the 'Master' tag.

I feel that this rule could be amended, in order to allow better management of tags by conscientious users who may not participate in questions regarding a certain tag, but like to help maintain the tag system.

I would recommend the following changes:

  1. Allow a user with a Score of 5 in the intended 'Synonym' tag to propose a tag synonym.
  2. Allow a user with a Score of 5 in the intended 'Synonym' tag to vote on a tag synonym request.

These would be helpful changes, but I think they do not address the more general issue: the tag synonym suggestion system doesn't seem to result in new synonyms. Moderators almost always have to step in to make the change. –  Jon Ericson Apr 11 '12 at 20:40
