What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 127 Stack Exchange communities.

Before:

The current tag synonyms page

After:

The proposed tag synonyms page.


The pros:

  • Speeds up the tag synonym voting process.
  • Easier to locate (as opposed to navigating to each individual tag wiki page).
  • Encourages users to vote on more than one at a time.

The cons:

  • Serial up/downvoting. But this really isn't even an issue because, (1) only experienced users can vote on tag synonyms, and (2) more than one vote is required to approve a tag synonym, so the occasional serial up/downvoter won't significantly impact the overall process.

Good idea, but it'd be even better if you only got the insta-vote arrows for tags you have the points to vote on in the first place. –  Kevin Jun 28 '12 at 1:37
    
True... but you get the general idea of it. I just wanted to give a general description of what I think we should be doing... I'm not a web designer by any means. :) –  Alex Lockwood Jun 28 '12 at 1:39

Please don't do useless edits like that just to bump your question. Bad form. If you want more attention, do it the right way and add more to it or put up a bounty. –  Jeff Mercado Jul 1 '12 at 19:14
    
We have long-term plans to rework the tag synonym UI, but I'll bring this up for discussion to see if it'd be a quick improvement to implement in the meantime. –  Anna Lear Jun 18 '13 at 20:06
