[ttf] is already mapped to [true-type-fonts], however there is also a proposal of [truetype] to [ttf] (-1).

Since the search now auto-replaces [ttf] with the master tag, you can no longer get to the synonym voting page.

Can I get a mod to dump this proposal (I was trying to downvote it anyway), and add the following as synonyms of [true-type-fonts]:

[truetype] (3)
[true-type-font] (0)

(Even for mods, do tags have to exist in the system for them to be added as synonyms? This can easily be circumvented, but I'm curious.)

    A related problem here is that you can't take back a proposal. I suggested [truetype] -> [ttf] only to then realize that there is also a [true-type-font]. But then it's too late to change ones mind about the first proposal. Comments on the synonym proposal could help here, since you could say "please vote down, should be ... instead".

  • @sth: Yes, agreed, although in this case comments wouldn't help because you can't get to the synonym page.

Another situation where the synonym proposal is stuck is when the master tag is deleted, as the page now 404s. e.g.
