Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 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

How about notifying qualifying users when a new Tag Synonym suggestion is proposed?

It's hard to get enough people to vote on the tag synonyms, especially since they're well hidden.

Maybe a button that shows up on their homepage/questions page that links to the suggested page when there is a new one, or they are newly qualified.

EDIT: Ivo has a great idea, the notification could be a button/link that get's enabled on the Review page.

Didn't we go over the inbox notification of new vote-able tag synonyms deal already? Unless you can think of a non-inbox method here, this is a duplicate. – Grace Note Mar 24 '11 at 16:40
@Grace, I guess I just keep thinking of those same great ideas :). I don't understand why the Team doesn't want to emphasize Tag Synonyms. It's almost impossible to get enough people to vote on the not-so-popular tags. I'll edit this question. – Lance Roberts Mar 24 '11 at 16:44
You would be better off suggesting it as an addition for the /Review page @Lance, at least the people there care about cleaning up the site. – Ivo Flipse Mar 24 '11 at 16:59
@Ivo, that is a good idea, I'll edit my post. – Lance Roberts Mar 24 '11 at 17:05
