What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 149 Stack Exchange communities.

It has been suggested that [visual-studio-2008] and [visual-studio-2010] should be synonyms of [visual-studio]. I disagree. There are issues specific to each version of Visual Studio just as there are issues specific to each version of any piece of software.

Visit the visual-studio tag page and cast your vote.

I recommend only bringing this stuff to meta if it has become a vetted synonym. Otherwise we will have 100s of requests like this.

Also we need to clarify on that page the synonyms means interchangeable NOT similar.

I guess I don't understand this synonym system yet. I don't know what it means for a synonym to be "vetted". I saw it on stackoverflow.com/tags/synonyms and assumed it was already locked in. I'll sit back and watch for a while longer. –  raven Aug 2 '10 at 0:53
@raven, you can filter by "active" which are active synonyms or "suggested", ones that are still in the voting phase. –  waffles Aug 2 '10 at 1:35
