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

Currently, is a synonym of . So I regularly see people creating questions tagged and - normally I would retag them to use instead but this tag is unavailable. I have to remove as essentially meaningless instead, not really a great solution.

Is there a reason why these tags should be synonyms? There is a fair deal of Magento questions dealing specifically with extensions, so useless fragmentation cannot be it. Can the synonym be deleted to allow creating as a new tag?

This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason:

  • "This question pertains only to a specific site in the Stack Exchange Network. Questions on Meta Stack Exchange should pertain to our network or software that drives it as a whole, within the guidelines defined in the help center. You should ask this question on the meta site where your concern originated." – CRABOLO, nicael, Martijn Pieters, Community, James
If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

The probable reason is that the tag is a very low volume tag - ~10k questions out of a total of 3.6 million (0.002% of questions asked).

The number of questions on those synonyms was drastically much less and probably didn't really justify these sub-tags.

I am usually active in tags with significantly fewer questions than that and still consider sub-tags very useful - not everybody is interested in all aspects of a product/language. – Wladimir Palant Sep 13 '12 at 12:49
