I have recently suggested tag-synonyms for a couple of tags. There has been no activity on them regarding up-voting or down-voting those suggestions, probably because no one knows I proposed them.
So, I propose that there should be a notification system to alert or get attention from 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 has 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 wanted tags. When suggesting a synonym, one could add comments explaining the desire for synonymization to make it easier to vote on them.
