On https://stackoverflow.com/help/privileges/suggest-tag-synonyms, we got:

Users with this privilege 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.

Looks like that could be shortened to:

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

Not quite. You need the actual create tag synonyms privilege in addition to a score of 5 or more on the tag in order to suggest a tag synonym. You don't need that privilege in order to vote on them, though. You only need a score of 5 or more on the tag in order to do that.

They should remain separated to emphasize that users who don't yet have that privilege are still able to vote on the synonyms. Otherwise people reading that privileges wiki might assume that the privilege is required for both of them.

  • That distinction is easy to miss. Perhaps something like but without this privilege should be added to the second sentence. – Tshepang Jul 30 '14 at 9:46
