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

At the moment, the pages that come up under the Tags tab display synonyms at the end of the list. There's little indication that they're synonyms; they look just like any tag that's used once. Only alphabetization on the page where the single-use → synonym switch occurs gives any indication that certain tags are synonyms at all.

We already identify tags that are used multiple times by appending a number, like "× 574." Can we append something similar for synonyms, like "× 0" or "(s)"?

Oddly titled, but this is roughly asking for what you want, if I'm not mistaken. – Grace Note Oct 15 '10 at 13:27
@Grace, I suppose that's close enough. Searching is a somewhat different use case than just browsing the full list, but if others want to close, I won't fight for a reopen. – Pops Oct 15 '10 at 13:41
Fixing one should implicitly fix the other, aye? Searching is just browsing a filtered subset of the full list, after all. – Grace Note Oct 15 '10 at 13:49
@Grace, if you say so; I only use the tags list once every few weeks, if that. Seems plausible, though. – Pops Oct 15 '10 at 14:03
