I have recently suggested tag-synonyms for a couple of tags. There have been no activity on them, regarding up-voting or down-voting those suggestions. Probably because no one knows that they have been suggested.
So, I propose that there should be some kind of a notification system to alert or get attention of users with sufficient rep and the ability to vote on the synonyms of the specific tag.
The notification doesn't have to be sent out to the users specifically. It could be just, like when they are on a post tagged with a tag that have pending synonyms and the users have sufficient privilege to vote on it, it can show a marker like:
The counter can show how many pending synonyms there are.
So, what are your thoughts?
All proposals are welcome too. You can add them in the comments, answers or edit the question.
- Show a counter on the tags that the users have sufficient privilege to vote on, when they visit a post with those tags.
- Show the notifications on the Favorite Tags sidebar.
- Adding a review queue for synonyms, You could also filter it by tag so that you only see tags you care about. It would also be nice if, when suggesting a synonym, one could add comments explaining the desire for synonymization to make it easier to vote on them.
