Why am I not allowed to propose a tag synonym on Super User? I have 10k+ rep, the privileges show 100% across all - what am I missing out on ?

Seems I forgot reading about:

one of the requirements for proposing a synonym is that you have to have a score of 10 3 or more in that tag.

  • Seems it stops you even voting on a synonym if you don't meet the criteria - for example there's a suggested one for [amazon-ec2] at the moment, which after a quick test I can say I am unable to vote upon (having no answers in that tag).
