I have issues with retagging.

  1. For the last few days I couldn't retag as part of the Tag Cleanup (which is some sort of zen exercise for me, so imagine my frustration). I'd always get a "not substantial enough" edit warning. I wrote in Chat about it and was sent here. (BTW, I'm working on . Help is appreciated.)

  2. Now, as of today, I can retag, but it appears to count as an edit, which is not desirable (I don't mind the points, but the mods will certainly not be happy about it.)

On a sidenote, it would be nice to have the Retag button back, why was it removed in the first place? (Edit: I bow to the majority's opinion.)

Edit: I still have the problem. Now I can't even retag anymore without triggering the 6-character warning. (Body and title left unchanged.)

Edit2: Problem's still there. Can I install two versions (1.4 and 1.6) of svnserve and configure it to run simultaneously on a single host? Tag edits possible, but results in full edit.

Edit3: So, the problem's still there. Last warning: If no one does anything about it, I'll just go on retagging and get credits for it.

Just out of curiosity: Can anyone here do anything about it? If not, who do I talk to?

  • As I read it, there's no retag privilege anymore. You're doing full edits now, so please make them substantial enough. Sathya's answer is correct. – slhck Aug 2 '13 at 21:40

As per

Kill the Retag option, use just Edit & Propose a privilege to sit in the 500 reputation mark

retag is no longer present.

As determined from earlier discussions, the retag privilege serves a lot more confusion and a lot less of its benefit due to the suggested edit system. It must be done away with. It will be done away with. ♪

So this is

  • This isn't by-design. > I can retag, but it appears to count as an edit, which is not desirable (I don't mind the points, but the mods will certainly not be happy about it.) – it shouldn't count as a suggested edit, but it does. Oded said that "having the retag questions privilege will make it a regular edit". – slhck Jul 8 '13 at 7:46
  • @slhck looking back some related questions - does seem to be a bug – Sathyajith Bhat Jul 8 '13 at 7:55
  • @slhck looks like the privilege has been revoked. – Sathyajith Bhat Jul 8 '13 at 10:21

    Ah. Interesting. (NB: how are moderators ever going to know that stuff without browsing MSO all day long? </rant>) – slhck Jul 8 '13 at 10:30

    @slhck don't get me started - was as clueless was you. Long standing grouse.. – Sathyajith Bhat Jul 8 '13 at 12:39
