Allow tag synonyms where the source has more instances than the target
Right now, "You may only suggest synonyms that have a question count lower than the tag selected."
That's unfortunate, because if a less-correct tag has even one more use than a more correct tag, you can't suggest it as a synonym.
For example, the correct name of WCF RIA Services is, well, WCF RIA Services. But "RIA Services" was the name used while it was in CTP (not officially shipping). I tried to propose
ria-services (184 questions) as a synonym for
wcf-ria-services (101 questions), and the system would not allow the proposal.
Possibly better rules:
- You could propose a synonym if the "better" tag had at least some % of the "not so great" tag.
- You can propose any tag as a synonym, and people vote on which of the group they think is the best tag.
