For a long time, it seemed that I couldn't suggest tag synonyms. Today, I think I discovered why. I found that if I had no score on a tag (usually because it's a new tag that's almost the same as a standing, major tag) and tried to suggest a synonym, i'd get that rude flag saying I didn't have enough score to suggest it.
Today, I went to the common tag, where I had a high score, and suggested the new tag as a synonym. It worked fine!
Can the code be changed so that if the user has sufficient score on EITHER side of the suggestion, that they can be allowed to execute the suggestion?
ALSO, I would suggest that the synonym process show the difference so that it is clear which is which. Maybe two entry boxes, marking the master tag and the synonym tag?
It would also be really nice to see my score for each of the two tags in the synonym process.
[EDIT - I split off discussion of top users having synonym privilege into another question at the request of another. It seemed reasonable. ;-) ]
So, what is the consensus?
