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

When a question is locked, the "edit" link is inactive. I think that the "edit tag" link should be inactive, too.

From what I have tried on math.SE, it seems that when a question is locked, you can click on "edit tags" but when you try to save your edits, you get an error saying: This question cannot be edited at this time.

I was not able to see the same behavior here on meta.SO, probably because I do not have sufficient rep to edit posts.

You can see an example in this post on meta.math.SE. (I will post also some screenshots here.)

I have tried several locked questions on math.SE, the behavior is the same. For example 1, 2, 3, 4.

I tried to find out whether this has already been reported here, I only found this question: The new AJAX tag editing works for locked questions. It is not exactly the same and it is marked as .

Here are some screenshots:
