You can not approve your own suggestions.

I can approve synonyms, but to me and is not synonyms to . They are specific types of client object models, but they are not interchangeable with client object model.

  • Ok. I thought client object model is master and jsom/csom is part of it. Never thought of using the other way around. Thanks! Dec 28, 2014 at 16:01
  • Looks like someone merged it and now it's broken the search for CSOM questions. I just searched for CSOM and got mostly JSOM since it redirected to Client Side Model. These things are not the same and are not equal in functionality.

  • Yeah it looks like both jsom and csom now are synonyms to client object model. I guess other parts of the community felt differently than me about it.. Apr 28, 2015 at 13:46
  • @HughWood I can remove the bindings, but I wonder how the community feels. Do you care to start a new meta question for sorting it out? Apr 28, 2015 at 13:50
  • I can, but its like saying SSOM is CSOM, it's a totally different api, with different mappings and methods

  • @HughWood, you know what. I will remove the mappings, and then if the issue arises it can always be remapped Apr 28, 2015 at 14:07
