I am active in asp.net-mvc tag and I see that many people tag their question with asp.net and mvc tag, but not asp.net-mvc. Since asp.net-mvc is constructed by combining asp.net and mvc, I suggest showing a message like:

Since you selected **asp.net** and **mvc** tags, maybe **asp.net-mvc** may be suitable too.

Message would show only if a combined tag has high popularity.

@John Saunders: That is not the same. My suggestion doesn't need to store any lists and is easier to implement. –  LukLed Mar 20 '10 at 22:30
I didn't mean that yours was a duplicate, only that it's in the same direction. –  John Saunders Mar 20 '10 at 22:51
The tag synonym system is planned to be added, so asking to have something added to support the old system likely won't fly with the powers that be. Moreover, I just tried it, if you put in asp.net in the tags window and let the suggestions drop down, asp.net-mvc is the second item in the list under asp.net. –  Jon Seigel Mar 20 '10 at 23:18
@Jon Seigel: It is second and still not selected in many cases. It is 8 months since synonym system was declared as planned and we'll have to propably wait a lot of time before it is implemented. Having big plans doesn't mean that we can't make little improvements. –  LukLed Mar 21 '10 at 0:06
