On Stack Overflow, there are tags for code libraries and software development platforms. For instance, there's a tag. In many cases, it is redundant to list tag synonyms for each release of a library update, so the developers put in place validation to prevent people from creating synonyms like and .

Since this site runs on the same engine, the system thinks you're creating a version-specific tag, and only diamond moderators can create version specific tag synonyms. In short, you're not doing anything wrong, you're just getting caught up in some of the system safeguards.
