What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 122 Stack Exchange communities.

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

Result:

  • 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

Expected:

  • Error prompt
  • Options remain checked

Suggestion:

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

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
