According to the tagging recommendations, we should use instead of . However, we cannot add a tag now.

Creating the new tag [prepositions] is not allowed since the tag [preposition] already exists.

  • @hippietrail: I think SE asks to use also the tag in question. I was not certain however if I should include the old or the new tag.

  • I believe we'll need a mod to do this. Could compile a list of problem tags in the meantime.

  • @Alenanno Are you quite sure about what you've done with re-tagging of this post? I think I've done everything according to SE meta recommendations on retagging request, though I cannot find it now. In general may I suggest that we add comments if we do heavy editing (including tags) in meta, especially while we are in the early days of this SE.

  • @texnic Sure! The fact is that support is usually adopted when you don't understand something, at least I've seen it used like that. You're not asking for a re-tag, but rather to fix tags, they are two different things.

  • @Alenanno Well, as far as I understand, you should attract the support people attention, hence the support tag. You should mention the tag in question, so that they there is no ambiguity. And it's not a feature request since it's an already implemented feature of SE, we just need to use it. That's how I understand it. The problem is that I didn't invent all this, I've read it somewhere and cannot find the place any more. Can someone help?

  • @texnic The feature-request is not only for asking for new features. I've seen it used in other ways too. I'll ask other mods. :)

  • @Alenanno I still cannot find the guidelines I've mentiond above, however here is an example of retagging process on Stackexchange itself: meta.stackoverflow.com/posts/58140/revisions Note the addition of the support tag in rev. 2.

  • @Alenanno (Sorry for spamming) I've found it! meta.stackoverflow.com/tags/retag-request/info Please restore the support tag if you agree.

  • @texnic Uhm, it seems you're right. I can't rollback, can you do it? :P I'll ask the mods anyway so they can explain this to me. :D
