I have a question asked recently here:

Unable to start libvirtd

which I am unable to tag with If I tag it, it disappears when the question is up on AU. What is going wrong here?

  • @Tachyons Provide that as an answer. ;) Btw, synonyms can be found on the tag's page. See for this case askubuntu.com/tags/virtualization/synonyms

1 Answer 1


and tags are synonyms: https://askubuntu.com/tags/virtualization/synonyms. So, as Tachyons said in one comment, no need to use it separatly.

See https://askubuntu.com/privileges/suggest-tag-synonyms:

What happens when a question is asked using a synonym?

Any tags that match active synonyms will be automatically and silently changed from their original as-entered form to the tag that the synonym points to.

This also increments a synonym counter, which you can view at /tags/synonyms to evaluate the effectiveness (or ineffectiveness) of the synonyms that are in place.
