Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 131 Stack Exchange communities.

So there are two tags for Orchard:

I'm assuming they're the same thing, and it would be nice if someone created a synonym.

I just really like Orchard and would like to see more people participate about it here, as opposed to the mailing list and the not so great CodePlex forum.

I verified that all the questions were really questions and retagged them. There are currently no questions.

However, creating the "orchard" synonym for the "orchardcms" tag requires more than 2500 reputation and a total answer score of 5 on the tag.

See Top Users for orchardcms. There is currently only one user who qualifies! (User Sohnee)

You might invite him into a chat and ask him to propose the synonym. But there currently only 2 other users who can up-vote it if he does. It requires 4 up-votes to get approved.

Alternatively, you might flag this answer and ask a moderator to do it. Note that meta moderators and SO moderators are not necessarily the same, IIRC.

+1 awesome, thanks! I was thinking of re-tagging myself! How do i invite him to chat? –  gideon Mar 3 '11 at 4:47
@giddy, see my revised answer. I realized that there aren't enough high-rep users on that tag to get a synonym the regular way. Your only choices are (1) wait and gain rep, (2) Get a moderator to do it, (3) lobby for a more egalitarian way to create synonyms (like the recent edit-mechanism changes). –  Awesome Poodles Mar 3 '11 at 4:50
I think I'll go with (2) at the moment, will flag your answer (or my question?) I will also try contacting darin who is on the top orchard users, back to my question, I'm not familiar with any option to invite a user to chat? –  gideon Mar 3 '11 at 4:56
Re chat invites: I haven't done it, but according to the Chat faq, you would create a chatroom and then "If you need to invite someone to your room, do it from the room edit menu." I'll go try to invite you, now. –  Awesome Poodles Mar 3 '11 at 5:00
ah ok, nope I don't see any invite yet here, on SO or meta? –  gideon Mar 3 '11 at 5:05
Just figured out how to send it, you might have to be active on SO to see it? –  Awesome Poodles Mar 3 '11 at 5:09
@brock so it seems like the orchard tag is gone/delete, maybe because you retagged so no question has it? Anyway, thanks for the help! =) Enjoy your bounty! –  gideon Mar 5 '11 at 20:04
Thanks! Glad to help. –  Awesome Poodles Mar 5 '11 at 20:10
