Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 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

Searching for "status" and "status-" returns the same results. To see only the red moderator tags, one must search for "status--". Wondering if this is by-design or not?

By design -- we search for both hyphenated and non-hyphenated forms of the tag simultaneously because users tend to enter it both ways.
