Related to : Why am I not allowed to propose a tag synonym ?
Couple of days ago, there were certain changes done to the requirements of who can propose synonyms.
So you need a score of 10 or more on answers for the tag, to participate in the tag synonym creation process (proposal and voting)
I'm getting real annoyed by those
stupid synonym proposal changes.
So I went over to propose a synonym.
Now either I let it remain as it is, or I have to go and manually retag them. And that means bumping the questions up. When there's a rep requirement, I don't know why in the world there's a score requirement. I realize that more the score == better participation in the tagged questions.
This makes sense for Stack Overflow, or ( perhaps ) Server Fault, but this is counter-productive in Super User. There are just not enough people on Super User who have the required score.
The third option is to raise a question in Meta and ask a question and wait for a Moderator or some one else who has sufficient score in those tagged questions ( hmm .. any way to find out WHO exactly? ) to propose and vote for it.. This just makes no sense - considering that the whole point of synonyms was to reduce the manual editing and bumping up.
