Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 155 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

Whilst trying to debug this issue, I've noticed something slightly odd.

If you go into preferences and add an interesting or ignored tag, then hover over it, the tooltip will show "click to delete this tag" - even though clicking at that point will actually view the questions associated with the tag. It's only the "x" (which has an accurate tooltip) which deletes the tag from the list.

It's interesting that the tooltip for new tags is "click to delete this tag" but the one for the "x" is "remove this tag". – Kyle Cronin Aug 16 '09 at 19:22

We fixed the tooltips! Probably over a year ago, but sometimes we forget to update meta.

Good catch. I wonder if that is a possible left-over of a long past time when actually clicking on the tag would remove it from the list or whether it is just a casual mistake.

No idea - but the nice thing about this bug is it's likely to take less time to fix than it took me to describe :) – Jon Skeet Aug 16 '09 at 20:10
@Jon Skeet: Are you sure about that? – TheTXI Aug 16 '09 at 20:24
