Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

On September 29th I created for How mature is Ebean or Siena? Today, while checking the tag description, I saw that the creator seems to be Community user.

Why is that? Why has the Community user "stolen" the spot as author of the tag?

Lots of related questions. Have you checked them? – Wivani Oct 4 '11 at 11:02
@Wivani didn't see any question about this specific issue, do you have a link? I only saw related to Community user asking what it was, etc... – Pere Villega Oct 4 '11 at 11:14
I - mistakingly? - thought all the topics about Community user would give some idea on how the process works. (Undid the downvote) – Wivani Oct 4 '11 at 11:41
@Wivani no worries :) – Pere Villega Oct 4 '11 at 13:41

The creator of a tag is not the creator of the related tag wiki: The creator of a tag is the first user who used it in a question, and so far it is not reported in any place. (There is a feature request about showing who created the tag, though.)

What you see in the history of a tag wiki is the creator of the tag wiki. You can only suggest edits for the tag wiki, with the reputation you have. If the tag wiki didn't exist before, then the Community user creates it for you.

What I did was edit the linked question and add the ebean tag into it. The tag didn't exist previously. That shouldn't count as me creating it? – Pere Villega Oct 4 '11 at 11:15
ah, ok, that clarifies a lot. Thanks! :) – Pere Villega Oct 4 '11 at 11:21
Very well said, it's really not clear or trivial.. – Shadow Wizard Oct 4 '11 at 14:37
