As I post this, we have ten outstanding suggestions for tag synonyms, some of them for more than four years. I therefore think it is more than time to urge a decision on these. This is the first part of a small initiative to reach such a decision.

If you have more than 2500 reputation, please

  • Open the list of active synonym suggestions.
  • Click on the master tag for all the synonym suggestions with which you agree or disagree.
  • Cast the respective vote on the respective synonym suggestion.

(In a second step, I will subject the remaining synonyms to general voting.)

If you feel that any suggestion requires a more extensive suggestion, please ask a separate meta question.

    Ow, that voting interface is outright bad. What was wrong with a vote button on the linked page already? These features are already almost invisible to start with... Commented Jan 1, 2019 at 18:11

    @FedericoPoloni: Yes, it’s universally agreed upon that the tag synonymisation system is pretty bad. Still, as it stands, we got to make the best of it.

  • @Wrzlprmft Can a user who has less than 2500 reputation suggest tag synonyms by opening a question on meta? Or is this discouraged?
