I understand tags can have synonyms, for example [rpg] can be a synonym of [role-playing-games]. How can I suggest new synonyms to existing tags?

  • What are the requirements? Kind of an important point.

  • I'm not sure if Macha's question is the same as mine, but in order to suggest a tag synonym, do you have to have access to moderation tools? What level of rep does this become accessible? Jul 23, 2010 at 20:36
  • No idea. 1000 reputation, maybe? The answer is probably buried in meta.stackoverflow.com

Visit that tag's page and click on the info tab. If your suggestion has already been made, upvote it.

You can also see a list of pending and active tag synonyms.

Once a suggestion reaches a score of 3, it is automatically accepted.


As of August 2, 2010, users require 1000 reputation in order to suggest tag synonyms.

  • Do you have access to the other moderation tools? Jul 26, 2010 at 22:06
  • Nope... not yet.

  • Confirmed at 1000 rep. Edited answer to reflect this. Aug 2, 2010 at 21:22
  • The current requirement seems to be "more than 2500 reputation and a total answer score of 5 or more on the tag [for which you'd like to request a synonym]". Jun 12, 2011 at 16:59
