I created a year and a half ago but they've since nick-named the asteroid Ultima Thule and people use that a lot.

It currently has 8 questions and no doubt in the next week it will get more, since the New Horizons flyby is imminent.

Is there a simple way to make it so when people start typing "ulti..." or "thul..." that they see the correct tag appear in the options?


There is, it's called tag synonyms. Add in your suggestion, and it can be confirmed and then that is the behavior.

  • $\begingroup$ Ah, I had thought tag synonyms happened only after two tags merged with some minimum number of uses on each tag. This sounds much easier than that. Thanks! $\endgroup$ – uhoh Jan 1 '19 at 13:16
  • $\begingroup$ 2014-mu69 has eight questions i.stack.imgur.com/WVXS9.png but I got this message: i.stack.imgur.com/LQ5VF.png That means I need to add the new tag to five questions before they can be merged? $\endgroup$ – uhoh Jan 1 '19 at 13:21
  • $\begingroup$ yep, and done. Thanks! $\endgroup$ – uhoh Jan 1 '19 at 13:28
