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

At some point between when the tag synonym system was added to ServerFault and now, the reputation requirements to propose and vote on tags shifted. Even before the change we had trouble getting enough users into the voting process to get synonyms done without a Mod doing it. The more restrictive requirements mean that it a lot harder to clean things up, especially in smaller tags where our active users aren't that active. We seem to have enough for proposing, but getting enough votes is now nearly impossible without a mod.

The older rep-system for synonym voting was much more functional. I'd like that older system back, please. At least until the site grows to the point that SO-style abuses warrant it.

For now, as per the link already provided by Zoredache, post the request on meta.

Agreed that a modification would be nice to obviate this legwork procedure.
