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

After seeing that bicycles had 38 questions tagged as [chain] and 2 as [chains], I suggested a tag synonym for the two and then approved it. Now, searching on the tag chain returns one question, even though looking it up in the list of tags still shows there are 38 questions.

Am I doing something wrong? Should I not be approving my own tag synonym suggestions? Does it simply take some time for the system to catch up?

(Perhaps this relates to the current network upgrades?)

Had you flipped to the unanswered tab by accident?
