Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 130 Stack Exchange communities.

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?

What you do is post on meta to ask a moderator to do it. –  Gilles Sep 16 '12 at 11:08
