I am sure this was asked before, but I couldn't find it.

So, when I tried to vote on tag synonym, I got this :
You do not have the required score on this tag to vote for this tag synonym

So, what score do I need to vote for tag synonym?
What is the reason for this?

The criteria for proposing a tag synonym are as follows:

  • You must have at least 2500 reputation.
  • You must have a total answer score of 5 or more (total upvotes minus total downvotes) on the master tag (not the tag you're proposing as a synonym).
  • If a tag has more than 50 questions in it, the proposed synonym tag cannot have a question count greater than 1.25x the master tag.
  • You may not suggest any synonym that is already suggested on another tag.

The criteria for voting on a tag synonym are as follows:

  • You must have a total answer score of 5 or more (total upvotes minus total downvotes) on the master tag (not the tag you're voting on as a synonym).

Synonyms are automatically approved when they reach a score of 4, and automatically deleted when they reach a score of -2.

    note that we relaxed some of the synonym rules for low-count tags and when the counts are "similar" between master and synonym – Jeff Atwood May 22 '11 at 23:32
