On two different computers, whether I put in the url string /css-selectors, or put [css-selectors] in the search or click on the tag, they all rewrite as merely , with the url string being http://stackoverflow.com/questions/tagged/css instead of http://stackoverflow.com/questions/tagged/css-selectors.

FYI--At least some other hyphenated tags appear to still be functioning correctly, so it is not simply because of the hyphenated name.

You are looking at a synonym; is now a synonym for the tag.

See the synonyms page for the full list of synonyms.

According to the tags synonyms overview page the synonym was created on May 13th. That is the date at which the synonym proposal was created and voting starts, I don't think we can see the date when the synonym proposal was accepted.

The proposer of the synonym did receive a Synonymizer badge only two hours ago; it is quite likely that that badge was earned for the css-selectors synonym proposal being accepted.

It wasn't just an hour or so ago. Someone must have just changed that (and if so, I'm not sure I agree with the change). – ScottS Jun 21 '13 at 16:03
@ScottS: I think then that the voting must have completed recently. – Martijn Pieters Jun 21 '13 at 16:07
Where does voting for such replacements take place? That seems to be elusive to my locating. – ScottS Jun 21 '13 at 16:12
On the tag's synonyms page. See the regex synonyms page for a currently active proposed synonym. You can also see all currently active proposals on the synonym overview. – Martijn Pieters Jun 21 '13 at 16:12
Okay, that explains why I could not find any vote info for css-selectors. So the related question would be, how does one get a synonym reversed (or can it be done)? – ScottS Jun 21 '13 at 16:19
You'd have to request that the synonym be removed here on Meta (see the tag synonym faq). – Martijn Pieters Jun 21 '13 at 16:24
Thanks for the info, I did just such a request. – ScottS Jun 21 '13 at 16:51
