The renaming and synonymising of tags is not working. Some tags are 'broken' (but the issue is perhaps being followed up). However Travel has a better system than I have seen on other SE sites but it could perhaps be improved. Rather than an assortment of sporadic posts such as the most recent of which I am aware September 2016 Tag Rename & Synonym MegaQuestion I suggest:
- An annual post, with Title starting with the year
IMO the rate of renaming and synonymising required should be much lower in future than in the past, even allowing for a better system increasing usage of such a system.
- 'Answers' should be where the specifics are given
ie current and proposed – so that when effected just a tick is required, line by line.

- Once all entries in any
Ahave been ticked the entire
Ashould be 'Accepted' and no further entries added to that
Instead start a new
A. If more than one
A'Acceptance' can't be with a green tick, so would need a note to mark the
This however is a hack that somewhat abuses the meta Q&A format. It attempts to work around SE tagging deficiencies in general but which may be worse for a site where we only have a ratio of around 18 users per tag on average (cf SO ~88).
What say you?
