We currently have 17 questions tagged , which is the formally correct name for the Scrum ceremony. However, colloquially many people call this meeting the , so I recently created this tag because I couldn't figure out how to just create a synonym.

I think should point to because the latter is more canonical. However, I suspect that most users would find "daily standup" or even just "standup" to be more intuitive.

Answer Me My Questions Three

With that background in mind, my questions are these:

  1. Why can't I add a synonym directly?
  2. Can we (and should we) proactively add synonyms for ease of use and/or search?
  3. Can someone with super-cow powers link the synonym described above?

1 Answer 1


good evening

I believe this might answer your question:

Users with more than 1250 reputation and a total answer score of 5 or more on the tag, can suggest tag synonyms. Users with a total answer score (total upvotes minus total downvotes) of 5 or more on the tag, can vote for tag synonyms. Suggestions will be automatically approved when they reach a score of 4, and automatically deleted when they reach a score of -2.

Based on the above, Id say:

  1. Because the SE idea is to work based on suggestions + upvotes
  2. Yes
  3. Done


  • The problem I was having was primarily that the way to navigate to the synonyms page is not very intuitive. Thanks for the help!
