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 created the tag on Stack Overflow but would like to rename it to as we have rebranded our api as such.

Here's an article about the rebrand

I'm not sure if tag synonyms are exactly the thing I am looking for as adding as a synonym seems like it would point to the master tag which is the wrong way around?

Excuse me if I am missing something obvious!

NOTE: I have not created the tag yet.

Can't you just retag them? I only see two under the original name – simchona Jul 4 '12 at 6:46

The few questions have been retagged to and the tag wiki and excerpt should appear there shortly. Since there are only a few questions, it's not currently possible for normal users to create a tag synonym to the old name, so a moderator would have to do that. However, I'm not sure it's necessary since it wasn't a huge topic before the name change and I doubt anyone would become confused by it.

I should have just created the cosm tag and retagged them myself. I really appreciate the help and sorry for the hassle! – lebreeze Jul 4 '12 at 6:53
