Recently I got the privilege to suggest tag synonyms. I've tried it whenever I found any, sometimes I have to see as per requirements for suggestion:

required score message

My suggestion is, to show the user their current score for a particular tag on this page i.e,

Your score for is 3, You need at-least a score of 5 in this tag to suggest a synonym

If the user is not allowed to suggest it should be shown in red.

  • 3
    I don't see the use in making an error message dynamic in order to show a number that low. It would only be one of 0, 1, 2, 3, or 4. I think saying "it's currently less than 5" is plenty efficient, and it doesn't require a dynamic error message.

Maybe suppressing / hiding the 'suggest a synonym' option for tags you're not qualified to suggest a synonym for would be another option -- skip the error message altogether that way, and doesn't waste your time/effort.
