I've just posted a question on Server Fault about Windows Profiles.

I started typing in "windows" in the tags and "windows" appeared on the drop down list.

tags: windows

I then moved my cursor to the end and started typing "profile" as a "windows" tag on its own is pretty useless.

tags: windows profile

However, on selecting "Profile" from the drop down list, "Windows" is removed and tag says "Profiles Pro".

tags: profiles pro

I'm confused, how to I tag like the following?

windows profile

Hey thanks, that edit helps clears things up a lot. – random Nov 10 '09 at 12:03
So a bug in stackoverflow? – user131750 Nov 13 '09 at 16:07

This is an issue with your browser, which could be either IE6, IE7 or the stand out Opera.

Basically, the tag suggestion is overwriting your first tag, preventing you from easily making use of it as it just replaces it.

To tag your question, you have two options:

  1. Tag it fast and ignore the suggestions
  2. Type up the tags elsewhere and put them in later.

When it stands out, why does it have the same issue? :] – Ladybug Killer Nov 10 '09 at 11:35
@John: because its supposed to be better? – AnonJr Nov 10 '09 at 11:41
"Opera is like the honors student who occasionally snaps and goes on a random killing spree. I'll take IE6 "special needs" over that any day" – random Nov 10 '09 at 11:46
