I have some general feedback regarding the new dashboard which has made my processing of synonyms a little bit harder.

Let me tell you from where I am coming. I have spent the past 1 year playing around with tags (starting from June 16th 2018, barring the 3 month vacation that I took from Sep 15th to Dec 15th), and adding around 600 synonyms on Stack Overflow. Some days, I've been creating more than 20 or 30 synonyms, so I definitely am a heavy user of that page.

Today, I started this year's annual cycle of "Fun with Tags", and used the new shiny dashboard. My usual way of handling synonyms is:

  1. I open the master tag's page and click on "Synonyms".
  2. Type in the other tag's name and click on "see all synonyms"
  3. Click on "approve".

As you can see here, it was 3 clicks. Now it is:

  1. I open the master tag's page and click on "Synonyms".
  2. Type in the other tag's name and click on "see all synonyms"
  3. Click on the "pending approval" tab
  4. Click on "approve"
  5. Click on "yes, I approve"

which is now 5 clicks or almost double number of clicks as compared to the last time. This has caused a serious decrease in my productivity. I get it that I am not too fast usually, but this has made me a bit more slow.

Another fact that is currently causing a small trouble is the swapping of master and the synonym places. There is this problem called "muscle memory". I've been trained for the entire past year to look at the first column as the master and the second as the synonym. Swapping the two has messed up a lot, and does cause a bit of trouble. The process for creating a synonym has now been:

  1. I open the master tag's page and click on "Synonyms".
  2. Type in the other tag's name and click on "see all synonyms"
  3. Click on the "pending approval" tab
  4. Click on the "..." to get the swap menu in order to swap the two synonyms thinking that I've proposed it in the wrong order (muscle memory problem)
  5. Click on "swap"
  6. Click on "cancel" realizing that I have made a mistake
  7. Click on "approve"
  8. Click on "yes, I approve"

which is taking me a long time to get a synonym approved. My "Fun with Tags" episodes aren't being fun anymore. I see that you mention:

The "synonym" and "target" columns are reversed now, so the table can be read from left to right;

but has anyone actually complained that this was a problem? To me and to most of the users who've used the synonym page a lot, it was quite clear. Even in most of my meta answers, I've used ← to indicate that direction. I am not able to see as to why that created a problem.

Anyway, for this mistake I can take the blame. I will get used to the new one in the next few months, but I would still have to make 5 clicks to get a synonym approved.

Would it be possible to make this experience a bit smoother? Please? I do request you humbly.
