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

All the current documentation for tag synonyms imply (or even state) 2000 is needed to vote on tag synonyms. Unless it is a beta-test issue or something, I can vote on synonyms with <700 on SO and <730 on Meta. (I cannot vote in SU with 130 odd or StackApps with 140.)

My initial implementation and unit tests all had tag editing as the rep requirement. I just upped it to post editing cause I think it makes much more sense.

Synonyms can be pretty destructive.

I think I understand your response: Voting required the same rep as tag editing and now you've made it the same rep requirement as post editing. I assume it takes a while for your changes to go live -- I can still vote on SO and MSO. – Mark Hurd Jul 31 '10 at 5:46
yerp, note this will be in the next deploy, probably early next week – waffles Jul 31 '10 at 5:49
It probably makes sense to lower the bar to start with anyway, to clear most of the older clearly reasonable synonyms. – Mark Hurd Jul 31 '10 at 5:52
