When looking through the tags page, tag synonyms are shown in the list. When you hover over them, they show the description for the parent tag. For example, when hovering over the tag on Movies & TV, it correctly shows the tag wiki excerpt for the tag:

Godfather tag synonym on Movies & TV

However, it does not show the full description underneath it, like the parent tag does:

Godfather tags on Movies & TV

To make the tags and synonyms easier to navigate, can the full descriptions please be inherited too?

  • To reproduce the second image, go to the Movies Tag page and type godfather. It's a touch odd to include a synonym in that case without at least showing what it's mapped too. Jun 19, 2014 at 1:31

    Given that this quirk can be used to spot synonyms more easily, I'd object to its being removed unless some other way to discern them was added. For example, simply showing both tags in the main list and an arrow or something between to signify the synonym direction. Jan 20, 2016 at 6:14
