I think you can use the rename directive here.
Shall we try it? I'll edit the request if you agree.

Sure, you can test it!

Though, an alias also prevents any future use of the old tag, so you may need an alias anyway, unless I'm misunderstanding what rename is 🤔

The thing is, unlike danbooru tagging on oyp is less extensive (we don't need all the tags danbooru has, for instance) and the autocomplete popup works wonder in my opinion, so if we rename a tag to go from singular to plural, entering "coi" and pressing tab (i.e. autocompleting it) will generate "coins" instead of "coin".
This is both true for new posts and for searching.
Of course if someone manually writes "coin" like this it's an error, but I'd rather have an accidental typo from time to time than an unimportant alias.
On the other hand, the purpose of aliases is to keep old search terms for backward compatibility, so to speak, but I think we should make compromises as it's both pointless and resource intensive to have an alias for every tag.

Yes, it's less extensive. Need is a relative thing, though xD. I enjoy tagging on danbooru and I also enjoy doing it here. Considering how sparsely tagged everything on oyp is, I'm giving myself the liberty to add basal tags

If you are going to tag "black hair" on every picture with Reimu I'm going to ban you for a week :P
