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've suggested a synonym, but [downvoting] seems the better tag. Could [down-votes] be merged into [downvoting]?

Ok, done, and I merged all approved synonyms on meta while I was in there.

Would make sense to do [up-votes] and [upvoting] as well for consistency? – ChrisF Oct 20 '10 at 20:42
I believe you did the inverse of what I was asking: [downvoting] is now a synonym of [down-votes] rather than being the "preferred" tag? I'm probably worrying too much about a subjective, small (in the grand scheme) issue, but that wasn't obvious from your answer. – Gnome Oct 20 '10 at 20:49
@Gnome I'm unsure how Atwood's system works, Gnome, but in most systems the primary tag, or current preferred tag, is fixed until. For data-consistency purposes. So adding a synonym to the tag down-votes was the solution that probable cost less time. – JustinKaz Apr 22 '11 at 17:35
