So, in this post, I suggested to replace with . A user suggested instead, which is indeed better.

So having 7 upvotes and no downvotes, I decided to implement the change. But then I ran into the system:

can't create tag

How could I ever go about implementing this change if the system prohibits its creation in the first place? Can it only be done by moderators?

(As an aside, I think the red text should say "Your edit couldn't be submitted." instead of "question".)

Ask a moderator to perform this change by making a meta post. Moderators can also directly merge the two tags to rename the old tag, which is easier than retagging all old questions by hand.
