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

You seem to be able to vote for your own tag synonym proposals.

Is this a bug or by design?

(My proposal noframework/no-framework that I voted on)

It makes sense that if you suggest it, it makes sense that it would have at least one vote to indicate your support for it. It's not like you gain rep from synonym upvotes or anything. – Andy E Jul 22 '10 at 14:13
@Andy I think it's implied that it has your support if you proposed it in the first place. I support all the questions, answers, and comments I post, but I'm not allowed to upvote them – Michael Mrozek Jul 22 '10 at 14:22
@Michael Mrozek: yes, but you gain rep on those (with the exception of comments). Also, barring special circumstances, all of those can be deleted if you change your mind. Final argument, you don't actually own the tag synonym, it's not really "yours". – Andy E Jul 22 '10 at 14:39

No this is not by design and should not be allowed. I think there was a miscommunication on our team here.

Sorry waffles. I hope I haven't got you into trouble with the big boss man. =:) – Simon P Stevens Jul 22 '10 at 15:54
no worries, just a miscommunication – Jeff Atwood Jul 22 '10 at 17:39
