Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 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 tag synonym requests should be exposed more for voting.

The tag synonyms page shows all current and suggested synonyms. You can filter it to show only suggestions; the number in parentheses next to pending is how many votes it has

How do you get there from the main page, I can only get there through your link. – Lance Roberts Aug 10 '10 at 22:40
I found the complicated way, I'll mod this and add another feature-request. – Lance Roberts Aug 10 '10 at 22:42
@Lance: You can get there from the tag-info-pages, click on "see all tag synonyms »". – Georg Fritzsche Aug 10 '10 at 22:43
It would also be helpful to have a filter to show only the current/suggested synonyms where I am eligible to vote. Currently, I have to look at my profile page and make a guess as to which tags have enough upvotes (after I've checked the FAQ to see what that minimum threshold even is). By the time I've done all that, my compile is finished and I'm back to work for another hour... – Ether Aug 10 '10 at 23:50

Keep in mind...

Moderators have a one click approve process. I will frequently go through the list and approve trivial things. This process is significantly more efficient that the old "retag-request" route on meta.

I am not totally against exposing this a bit better when we do the tag page refactor (in the next few weeks) but for now this will have to wait.

I don't have a problem waiting a few weeks. – Lance Roberts Aug 11 '10 at 1:38

We could have all proposed tag-synonyms auto-generate a question on Meta, that could then be seen and voted on.

that would cause a flood on meta – waffles Aug 11 '10 at 1:22
@waffles, I mean once the first waves have died down. – Lance Roberts Aug 11 '10 at 1:38
