The current tag synonyms page


The proposed tag synonyms page.

The pros:

  • Speeds up the tag synonym voting process.
  • Easier to locate (as opposed to navigating to each individual tag wiki page).
  • Encourages users to vote on more than one at a time.

The cons:

  • Serial up/downvoting. But this really isn't even an issue because, (1) only experienced users can vote on tag synonyms, and (2) more than one vote is required to approve a tag synonym, so the occasional serial up/downvoter won't significantly impact the overall process.

    Good idea, but it'd be even better if you only got the insta-vote arrows for tags you have the points to vote on in the first place.

  • True... but you get the general idea of it. I just wanted to give a general description of what I think we should be doing... I'm not a web designer by any means. :) Commented Jun 28, 2012 at 1:39

    We have long-term plans to rework the tag synonym UI, but I'll bring this up for discussion to see if it'd be a quick improvement to implement in the meantime.
