When asking a new question and creating a tag that doesn't exist I get just an empty hover-up box.

I haven't tried to actually post a question with a bogus tag, so I'm not sure if this behaviour occurs only on the "Ask Question" page.

  • FYI: Posting a question with a non-existing "bogus" tag will create that tag - that's where almost every tag on the site has originally come from.

What else would you expect to happen for tags that do not yet exist?

    Maybe no empty popup... (I.e. if there's no relevant content, don't show it.)
