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

An example that I want to give is that I see two similar tags that mean the same thing:

As you can see the only difference is the "s" at the end I am sure there are more examples like this.
There might be multiple approaches for solving this.

From the moderator/admin getting a monthly report on similar tags and making modifications manually or something more brilliant.

I am not sure if anyone has noticed this and if it is an issue for others but I just wanted to point it out.

It's probably best to have one as a synonym of the other and then to manually retag the rest (there are only 6 in and 29 in currently). I don't have enough rep to suggest the tag synonym, so maybe a moderator can take care of that.

Good catch, catching these early is always best to make it less painful.

edit: is empty now and I moved everything to
