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

When trying to create a tag that too closely matches an existing tag a user receives the following error message:

You are attempting to create the tag [tag-1] ; however the tag [tag-2] already exists

The semicolon should not have a space before it in that message.

Reference? I think everyone knows there's not supposed to be a space there. I don't think anyone cares, though. – animuson Jun 20 '12 at 22:58
Really? 5 second fix - makes the world a tiny tiny bit better, or would you prefer these things never be pointed out? – David Hall Jun 20 '12 at 22:59
Interesting, a space is required before and after every semicolon in the french language, I wonder why it isn't the same for english language... Anyway, question without any other interest. – zessx Jun 21 '12 at 7:31

This was one of the less exciting bugs I tackled today, but it's fixed in the next build anyway.
