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

[ttf] is already mapped to [true-type-fonts], however there is also a proposal of [truetype] to [ttf] (-1).

Since the search now auto-replaces [ttf] with the master tag, you can no longer get to the synonym voting page.

Can I get a mod to dump this proposal (I was trying to downvote it anyway), and add the following as synonyms of [true-type-fonts]:

[truetype] (3)
[true-type-font] (0)

(Even for mods, do tags have to exist in the system for them to be added as synonyms? This can easily be circumvented, but I'm curious.)

This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason:

  • "This question pertains only to a specific site in the Stack Exchange Network. Questions on Meta Stack Exchange should pertain to our network or software that drives it as a whole, within the guidelines defined in the help center. You should ask this question on the meta site where your concern originated." – doppelgreener, CRABOLO, Scimonster, Martijn Pieters, rene
If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

In the future, the system should probably handle this automatically – Michael Mrozek Aug 11 '10 at 1:43
A related problem here is that you can't take back a proposal. I suggested [truetype] -> [ttf] only to then realize that there is also a [true-type-font]. But then it's too late to change ones mind about the first proposal. Comments on the synonym proposal could help here, since you could say "please vote down, should be ... instead". – sth Aug 11 '10 at 1:53
@sth: Yes, agreed, although in this case comments wouldn't help because you can't get to the synonym page. – Jon Seigel Aug 11 '10 at 2:00


Another situation where the synonym proposal is stuck is when the master tag is deleted, as the page now 404s. e.g.
