How about notifying qualifying users when a new Tag Synonym suggestion is proposed?

It's hard to get enough people to vote on the tag synonyms, especially since they're well hidden.

Maybe a button that shows up on their homepage/questions page that links to the suggested page when there is a new one, or they are newly qualified.

EDIT: Ivo has a great idea, the notification could be a button/link that get's enabled on the Review page.


  • Didn't we go over the inbox notification of new vote-able tag synonyms deal already? Unless you can think of a non-inbox method here, this is a duplicate. – Grace Note Mar 24 '11 at 16:40

    @Grace, I guess I just keep thinking of those same great ideas :). I don't understand why the Team doesn't want to emphasize Tag Synonyms. It's almost impossible to get enough people to vote on the not-so-popular tags. I'll edit this question. – Lance Roberts Mar 24 '11 at 16:44

    You would be better off suggesting it as an addition for the /Review page @Lance, at least the people there care about cleaning up the site. – Ivo Flipse Mar 24 '11 at 16:59
  • @Ivo, that is a good idea, I'll edit my post. – Lance Roberts Mar 24 '11 at 17:05
