I found several pairs of tags that have the same meaning with very close descriptions (when there was one):

I don't know which if these should be kept, and which (no pun intended) burned...

Or should they have references to the other tag added?

Keeping these synonyms prevents the duplicate tag from being created again. If we burned [clothes] now, a user could recreate the tag and then we'll have to go through making a synonym and/or merging the tags all over again.

  • I did not know there was a synonym list. How are we supposed to navigate without some type of reference to it? Feb 9, 2016 at 16:16
  • @AdamZuckerman If you hit, say, tag B which is a synonym of tag A, then you'll be forwarded to tag A.
