Generally SE is smart about avoiding silly duplicate tags (ie: post vs. posts). IN this case, I wanted to create a tag for get_post, referring to the
get_post() function, which is different indeed from
get_posts(), so the disambiguation made sense to me. Any thoughts?
We do now prevent users from creating new tags that differ only by a dash or a plural. There's no need to have [tagsynonyms] when we already have [tag-synonyms], for example.
This check does not apply to a moderator, so raising this issue on meta so that one of the moderators can edit the post is correct. However, a link to the question that needs to be edited would help. (:
SE is not smart, hard moderator work at creating tag synonyms is smart. :)
What exactly is your problem with creating that tag? You seem to have sufficient reputation for that.
