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

Cannot vote on synonyms has someone confused because "Users with a total answer score of 5 or more, can vote for tag synonyms."

Please expand (or hyperlink) what's meant by "answer score" in the tag synonym page.

(Alternatively, just drop the answer score requirement!)
