Recently I discovered, that I can use a favorite tag like "excel*" to get to all the relevant question - but because there are some additional tags - like vlookup - I still don't get all at once.
So, I thought it might be a good idea to create at least a tag synonym for it, like excel-vlookup, but I won't be able to do that for quite a while, due to lack of about 1500 rep.
However, what I (nearly) can do is create new tags, and this boggles me a bit.
Why does tag creation come before creation of tag synonyms?
And secondly, why are these privileges so far apart?!
IMHO a tag synonym has less impact, than a whole new tag, but can quickly improve usability, and because it is not instantly available, there seems even to be less possibility for abuse or misuse.
