Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 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

To reproduce:

  • Click Ask Question on meta
  • Fill in question
  • Check community wiki & Notify [] daily of any new answers
  • Don't enter any of the required tags, causing a prompt


  • Error prompt:

    Oops! Your question couldn't be submitted because:
    must include one of these tags -- bug feature-request discussion support

  • community wiki and Notify [] daily of any new answers are unchecked


  • Error prompt
  • Options remain checked


Leave something like the content of the prompt on the page to begin with:

Tags must include at least one of: bug, feature-request, discussion, support

This bug bit me again today. (Chrome 5.0.335.0 dev) – Gnome Mar 20 '10 at 14:28
I'm getting this as well, rather annoying as validation failed about 5 times for my question (stupid me). Using Chrome 4.1. – Ali G Apr 14 '10 at 12:12

Are you sure this has been deployed? I see still see this, also on the Beta sites of Stack Exchange. – Marcel Korpel Aug 10 '10 at 17:49
@Marcel you're seeing this when asking a question? – Jarrod Dixon Aug 15 '10 at 3:31
Yes, I just tried; when submission fails, the checkboxes are cleared. – Marcel Korpel Aug 15 '10 at 10:29
I just hit it this bug (although on the UI QA Site). I use Chrome 6.0.427.0 dev. Also I didn't tick community wiki, just notify. – Iain Nov 6 '10 at 6:53
@Iain - we're pushing a fix for the notify checked bug. – Jarrod Dixon Nov 9 '10 at 8:34
