I suggested [gtk+] and [gtk2] tag synonyms for the [gtk] tag; by the next day they had disappeared without a trace. Does that mean they were voted down to -2 and therefore rejected? If so, I would like to place a feature request for being notified when that happens.

List of rejected synonyms to avoid confusion and duplication of effort, you say? Why, that's just crazy enough to work! (+1) – Pops Aug 17 '10 at 14:43
Hm, a notification might even help with the education of those users that don't get synonyms. – Georg Fritzsche Aug 26 '10 at 12:08

+1 because it's a good idea, but for the record: gtk+ and gtk2 are not good synonyms for gtk. Specifications of a generic topic are not good candidate for synonyms.

Well, that's why I would have liked to be able to discuss that. I agree, having thought more about it, that [gtk2] isn't (although [gtk2] questions should be retagged as [gtk] unless they specifically refer to the GTK 2.x line), but GTK+ is the full name of the toolkit that everybody refers to as GTK. Nothing to do with being more or less specific. – ptomato Aug 26 '10 at 15:33
