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 tagging a question and a given tag is already added, it should be removed from the suggestion list. For example, if I have added all 6 tags that are initially suggested that start with a specific string, the tag suggestion should give me some new tags instead of those that I have just added.

You can only add 5 tags ;-). – Toon Krijthe Sep 13 '12 at 13:07
Maybe, but that is not the point. The point is to improve user experience by reducing the few extra milliseconds that it takes me to realize that I have already added a given tag. – hasMobi - Android Apps Sep 13 '12 at 13:24
every millisecond counts nowadays.. – d-_-b Sep 13 '12 at 14:45

I often use this "feature" to read the tag description of a tag I already added.

Unfortunately, hovering over an already added tag doesn’t show the description.

I agree that already added tags shouldn’t be suggested, but then, please, allow checking the description of already added tags somehow (without having to remove them first).

EDIT: It’s possible by clicking at an already added tag. (Thanks, Dukeling!)

You can click on the tag to see its description. – Dukeling Apr 10 '14 at 16:09
@Dukeling: Oi, nice, I never noticed that. (Or is it new?). Thanks :) – unor Apr 10 '14 at 16:13
I'm pretty sure it's been around for quite a while. – Dukeling Apr 10 '14 at 16:14
