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 just noticed something that might become a problem in the near future.

It's currently impossible to create new tag wikis. Editing existing ones seems to work, but you can't create new ones. The edit links all just redirect to the tag info page. This seems to be the case on every Stack Exchange site.

For example, try creating a tag wiki for the tag here on MSO. I'll wait.

I confirm, on all sites (well, I tried 5), at all privilege levels up to moderator. – Gilles Apr 12 '12 at 0:08
I can see it be able to edit the stackexchange tag here. – Benny Apr 12 '12 at 0:15
@Benny That's not a new tag wiki, stackexchange already has an excerpt. – a cat Apr 12 '12 at 0:16
Also, possibly related to this? – a cat Apr 12 '12 at 0:16
@lunboks Ah, sorry about that, I mis-read the question – Benny Apr 12 '12 at 0:17
Similar problem reported on Programmers.SE. – user149432 Apr 12 '12 at 2:32
And also on Gaming.SE – Drake Apr 12 '12 at 7:37

The "This post doesn't exist yet" fact confused the "Can this post be edited?" logic here. Fix is being rolled out to the network right now.
