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

A question here on meta for instance may stick around for quite a while. A feature-request maybe even for months. Then the status (tags) gets changed to or or whatever and the OP does not get notified.

On a normal post-edit we get a notification but retagging does not count for that. Please add retagging to the edit notifications.

Doesn't that constitute an edit, of which the OP would be notified? I think I was notified for my questions... – Bart Feb 22 '13 at 18:38
Today one of my questions got changed (status tag added) and I got no notification about the edit. Maybe retagging does not count as edit? – juergen d Feb 22 '13 at 18:39
@Bart I'm not so sure that OP gets notified about re-tagging. – yo' Feb 22 '13 at 18:41
I mean this question of mine. There is an edit visible but I got no notification. – juergen d Feb 22 '13 at 18:43
@tohecz Might be. Perhaps I'm making stuff up again. Sad thing is that I'm convincing myself... ;) – Bart Feb 22 '13 at 18:43
Come to think of it, perhaps it was the moderator adding an answer to my Meta questions which notified me, instead of the status tag change. – Bart Feb 22 '13 at 18:58
I don't know if all tag changes really require notification, but I can certainly see adding a notification for mod-only tag changes. – Servy Nov 6 '13 at 15:13
That's considered trivial edit, same as changing one or two characters for example. It's the mod/dev responsibility to also post at least a comment saying "this has been implemented", ideally full "Nick style" answer with details. – Shadow Wizard Nov 6 '13 at 15:16
