The tag was synonymed already to (though I think it would have been better the other way).

I really think both should be synonymed to , but because of the prior synonyming it won't allow me to create the tag synonym. Could we please get this done?

Here's the message I get when I try to create the synonym:

    I've never been much of a fan toward the -ing endings for tags. How would you feel about directing them all to edits (reverse synonym, send editing to edits)?

    @animuson, I'd be fine with that, though I think the verb covers more of what those kind of questions are about. Dec 19, 2013 at 17:11
  • @LanceRoberts I added the tag to one of your high-score editing posts, so that you probably have sufficient score to suggest a synonym. If my bounty ends in waste, I'll probably do same to some of my own posts, to get a score sufficient for voting on synonym-request

    @gnat, thanks, I already had the score the problem is that the system thinks that there is a reverse synonym thing going on. I think it is buggy. It will take at least a moderator to fix. I've edited in the error message to this post. Dec 25, 2013 at 17:37
