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 was asking a question and was tagging it when I saw an s next to a particular tag. Normally it shows the number of questions associated with that tag.

So instead of:

tag (12)

Or some number, I saw the letter S, like so:

tag (s)

What does it mean? That the tag is soft-deleted?

The tag is a tag synonym for a master tag.
