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

I am creating a program which is expected to push a trend's popularity forward ('f2f' which stands for "friend-to-friend', a sub category of 'p2p'). I wish to get notifications for this tag on Overflow, but the option of subscribing to it doesn't appear on the Stack Overflow website.

Could it be that I have to use the tag in a question first, then I can subscribe to it?

PS: If I am right, then I think I created the first question ever which answers itself and is the solution of itself in the whole history of Stack Overflow. Yeah !! ^_^

PPS: If seems that I need more reputation to create the tag 'f2f'. I hope someone with the right privilege could help me to create it. Thanks.

As I understand now, I need to get a reputation of 1500. Then I am allowed to create a tag and then I can technically subscribe to it.

I hoped to be able to subscribe to it before it was created (which IMHO makes sense), but maybe I am asking too much from the Stack Exchange system.

You can't create a tag without adding it to at least one question. You'll need at least one (good) question related to your software for that to work. – Mat Apr 1 '12 at 6:32
@Mat: I can't add it to a question without it to be created first. Users need 1500 of reputation in order to create a tag. – Vincent Apr 1 '12 at 6:38
Yes, what I'm saying is that even once you get 1.5k rep, the only way to create a new tag is by tagging a question. If there already are questions about f2f on SO, post a link here and someone could create the tag for you. – Mat Apr 1 '12 at 6:40
Thanks, I will do so on my next f2f question. – Vincent Apr 2 '12 at 1:53
