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'd like to request a new tag of , with a possible synonym of unless that is likely to clash with something else, or is deemed too short. Google Cloud Messaging replaces the c2dm service, which was officially depreciated on 26th June 2012.

I was originally going to request these as synonyms of , but the service is only being deprecated and nobody is being forced to move (yet), a new tag seems the better option.

Yes, I had seen that one, but I thought I'd also seen one saying you could suggest them here. Must have been a merge/synonym request, or a brainfart on my part. – Chilledrat Jun 28 '12 at 11:56

You could flag questions that you feel could use that tag for moderator attention (ask for the additional tag to be added), or retag the questions yourself (requires >= 1500 rep) and the tag will be created automatically.

In other words, tags are not created on their own; they need at least one question to be attached to.

I thought you needed 1500 rep for the create new tags privilege on SO. Does retagging bypass this? – Chilledrat Jun 28 '12 at 11:40
@Chilledrat: No, sorry, I had MSO and SO mixed up; it is easier here. I've updated the privilege rep requirement and link to reflect. – Martijn Pieters Jun 28 '12 at 11:41
Please don't flag for edits, anyone can propose a suggested edit, there is no need to involve moderators in this. – Mad Scientist Jun 28 '12 at 12:10
@MadScientist: But you cannot create new tags with a proposed edit when your rep is below 1500. – Martijn Pieters Jun 28 '12 at 12:12
