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

Today, everyone can suggest post edits. Even unregistered users. But, for some reason, tag synonyms suggestion is very strict, although it's much easier to review - it's only a couple of words.

I think that a good taxonomic system will improve the odds of finding an answer and avoid duplicate questions.

I'm suggesting to lower this limit dramatically. IMO, a 500 rep user is well acquainted with the system and understand the meaning of tag synonyms to suggest some of it's own.

I don't think that you need a score of 5 to understand that , and are the same (notice that I didn't earn a single point on any of these tags).

Current tag synonyms suggestion policy:

Users with more than 2500 reputation and a total answer score of 5 or more on the tag, can suggest tag synonyms. Users with a total answer score of 5 or more, can vote for tag synonyms. Suggestions will be automatically approved when they reach a score of 4, and automatically deleted when they reach a score of -2.
