I added a note to Tag Info about 10 minutes ago that went to review because I have insufficient rep in SU. Since then, I earned the Tag Editor badge and got the edit points, however, the Tag Info is still empty. Is this a bug?

See: https://superuser.com/tags/microsoft-access/info

  • According to the revision history your edit is there, and I've found the suggestion (it's #135) and it was approved 10mins after posting - so you should have the badge and rep. The potential bug therefore is that the final result is not being displayed.

  • I'm seeing this on some other approved edits as well. Potentially the pattern is that those that do not work are those without an excerpt - I've a feeling that the ecerpt might be required for a tag wiki to be valid.

  • @DMA57361 Okay, that seems reasonable, though a warning would be nice. Can you fix it for me or do I need to try again?

  • We leave it for now, it needs escalating to the team to fix, but it's already been reported on meta.SO so should be in hand.

It was approved, however you left the excerpt blank which messes stuff up big time.

I think I should disallow edits to tag wikis that leave the excerpt blank.

  • I left out the excerpt deliberately, because it seemed a little silly to repeat the same two lines. In other words, there was nothing to excerpt from and no warning.
