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

There doesn't seem to be an answer to this issue, which looks like an overly aggressive version-identification bug to me.

I tried to suggest a synonym of 'texttemplate' for 't4', and received the message "Version specific synonyms can only be created by moderators".

However, 't4' isn't a version specification, rather its a contraction.

I looked at Version Specific Tag Validation on Tag Synonym Page but there is no answer and it is specifically talking about numeric prefixes, whereas this is a case of a numeric postfix.

Given these are only suggestions that require voting anyway, this logic seems overly aggressive.

Is there a way to override it for non-moderators?
