The two tags and have almost identical tag wikis and seem to be equivalent. Should not one become synonym of the other then? I found this question: Tag synonyms on [Meta]: which asked for it but there was no specific comment/reaction to it.

Based on the usage it should probably go ->


I don't think they are synonymous:

  • is meant for discussion/support issues about tag synonyms (i.e. how they work, what they are for, who can create them, ...).
  • is specifically for requesting a new synonym relationship

All tag synonym questions need not be synonym requests. (And I don't think would necessarily be appropriate for synonym requests.)

  • Then the tag wiki for tag-synonyms should be changed as it is frequently used for synonym requests and it is not clear from the tag wiki what it should be used for – ChrisWue Jan 12 '12 at 21:04
  • @ChrisWue: feel free to propose a better wording for it. – Mat Jan 12 '12 at 21:08
