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. :) Jun 28, 2012 at 1:39

    Please don't do useless edits like that just to bump your question. Bad form. If you want more attention, do it the right way and add more to it or put up a bounty. Jul 1, 2012 at 19:14

    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.

  • @AdamLear this can be tagged status-completed, right?
