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

I made a typo while proposing a synonym for the [gtk+] tag and ended up with [gtkgtk2]. Nobody has voted on it. This is a feature request for the proposer of a tag synonym to be able to retract that proposal if nobody has voted on it yet.

I definitely think this should be implemented.

Typos are one thing, where it's obvious you made a mistake (it doesn't stop people from upvoting, though).

However, it's the situations where you mistakenly create a proposal that is close but incorrect, or end up with a [tag1] --> [tag2] --> [tag3] (or similar) heirarchy, which is obviously not good.

This seems like a really simple thing to implement, and it would allow the community to better manage itself instead of having to ask for help.

I don't think this is necessary. The tag will probably get removed soon anyway.
