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

Please merge into and create a synonym as they seem to cover same subject.

86 questions are using , and 23 questions are using . Even if those 23 can be manually retagged, it doesn't guarantee that there will be new entries with that tag, and I don't see anybody using them for different things.

If there is a tag that is synonym, the tag should not burninate. – kiamlaluno Jul 4 '12 at 19:52
