It's common on meta SE sites to have a tag named . For an example, see Meta StackExchange.

A request to add one tag as the synonym of another tag. Please be specific about which tag should be a synonym of which. Bidirectional synonyms and cycles are implicitly disallowed, so suggest wisely.

Since I have less than 300 reputation, I cannot create this, but I needed it with my latest meta question.

  • We have tag-synonyms already, so are you suggesting renaming this one, or adding a brand new tag? And are there any questions tagged [tag-synonym] that wouldn't also be suitable for synonym-request? And vica-versa - are there any synonym-request posts that wouldn't require tag-synonyms?

  • @JonW According to Meta StackExchange: "This tag is for questions about tag synonyms (how they work, who can create them, etc). Use synonym-request for tag synonym requests."
