Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 153 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

I am sure this was asked before, but I couldn't find it.

So, when I tried to vote on tag synonym, I got this :
You do not have the required score on this tag to vote for this tag synonym

So, what score do I need to vote for tag synonym?
What is the reason for this?

@clairesuzy Yes, that answers what score do I need, but on which tag (the 1st or the 2nd tag?). And what is the reason for this? – BЈовић May 22 '11 at 12:09

The criteria for proposing a tag synonym are as follows:

  • You must have at least 2500 reputation.
  • You must have a total answer score of 5 or more (total upvotes minus total downvotes) on the master tag (not the tag you're proposing as a synonym).
  • If a tag has more than 50 questions in it, the proposed synonym tag cannot have a question count greater than 1.25x the master tag.
  • You may not suggest any synonym that is already suggested on another tag.

The criteria for voting on a tag synonym are as follows:

  • You must have a total answer score of 5 or more (total upvotes minus total downvotes) on the master tag (not the tag you're voting on as a synonym).

Synonyms are automatically approved when they reach a score of 4, and automatically deleted when they reach a score of -2.

note that we relaxed some of the synonym rules for low-count tags and when the counts are "similar" between master and synonym – Jeff Atwood May 22 '11 at 23:32
