Suggesting tag synonyms requires 2500 reputation which seems REALLY steep for something so basic. It's strange because there is a badge for 3 such suggestions yet it's only considered a bronze badge.

    I've seen... An utterly ridiculous amount of drama surrounding certain tag synonyms. Yes, it's basic - but that doesn't mean "uncontroversial"! – Shog9 Aug 14 '11 at 4:14

2500 may seem high now, but 2 or 3 years from now, I assure you -- it won't.

The limit is there to ensure that truly experienced users are coordinating on the tags, which are the primary organizational system on the site.

It's OK if only a few users and the moderators are making these decisions now; as the site grows, more people will gain the privilege and can contribute to the process.

  • 2 or 3 years to make AirPort a synonym to Wi-Fi... That's a bit steep... – Alexander Aug 15 '11 at 4:37
  • It's not that nobody can create synonyms today. This is also the reason why ♦s (Community Mods) exist. – Jason Salaz Aug 15 '11 at 20:10
