Almost 2 months ago, I posted: https://meta.stackexchange.com/questions/217015/create-the-nivo-slider-tag-and-merge-nivo-nivoslider-with-it
Simply, the question asks for a ♦ moderator to allow the creation of the nivo-slider tag. There currently is a nivoslider tag, but it doesn't follow naming conventions. (There is also another tag, nivo, which needs to be merged as well.) It seems like a pretty simple task: create (or allow creation) of the new, hyphenated tag. I was going to then go through, myself, and start retagging questions to fix the naming issues and the duplicate tag issue.
The question got several upvotes, but no ♦ moderator response (as I assume they are the only ones who can make this tag request happen). I've burnt a bounty on it, and edited the question several times to push it back up and get attention, but no dice.
Today, I'm considering flagging the question for ♦ moderator attention, but this feels a little wrong to me. The question does need ♦ moderator attention, but not because the question is bad (which is what the flags are for).
QUESTION: Is it appropriate to flag for ♦ moderator attention? If not, what is the proper way to get a ♦ moderator attention to a task only they can resolve that seems to have been ignored for an extended period of time?
EDIT: I have permission to create new tags. However, because the tag is too similar to an existing tag, it has to be done by a ♦ moderator.
