Users with more than 2500 reputation and a total answer score of 5 or more on the tag, can suggest tag synonyms. Users with a total answer score (total upvotes minus total downvotes) of 5 or more on the tag, can vote for tag synonyms.

— I edited the page on MSO¹, and it will be propagated across the network.

In general those pages should refer to other privileges by name, never by reputation, since the reputation thresholds differ between sites. When you need to refer to another privilege, you can link to it on MSO; the link will automatically be converted to the target site upon propagation.

¹ Anyone with 2000 reputation on Meta Stack Overflow can edit the privilege descriptions under https://meta.stackoverflow.com/privileges.
