Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 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 just retagged all 6 questions to . I didn't have enough upvotes in either tag, so I couldn't suggest a synonym. Since it weren't that many questions and I'm confident that this is a correct change, I retagged manually.

Is it still necessary to take some action with regard to the now-unused ? If so, could someone remove , or synonymize it to ?

The tag will remove itself within 24 hours. Tags with 0 questions are always removed (except for the preloaded tags on metas) within 24 hours, unless you sneak that tag onto a question in the meanwhile.

Synonyms are more for when the tag keeps getting created. I doubt that this tag will keep getting created, someone must have accidentally created it at first and then people used it because it came up in autocomplete.

So no, no need to take any action :)
