What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

In the users page, I can see all the questions and answers.

In the questions I can see the tags, but why can't I see the tags in the answers?

I think answers should have the tags!


When I say 'I think answers should have the tags!'

I mean the tags of the question it answers, not new tags. If I am looking through a user's answer list I might find some more interesting answers if I have the tags of the question it answers.

I repeat: I want the tags of the question it answers, not tags related to the answer itself.

Sorry for the confusion.

Why should answers have tags? – Ladybug Killer Dec 28 '09 at 23:18
Thanks for clarifying that. – Bill the Lizard Dec 28 '09 at 23:39
ahh, NOW I get it. Thank you John! :) – Jeff Atwood Dec 29 '09 at 4:07
Wait, wait, wait, Jeff! You edited a 10 hours old comment? THAT'S NOT FAIR! – Ladybug Killer Dec 29 '09 at 14:14
YES! That's what I meant (pictured above) in my duplicate question. If somebody else is browsing my profile, or vice-versa, and they look at the answer list, they can have a better idea of what the original question was about (the titles of questions often suck). I.e. - I am interested in X, do you have any sense when it comes to X? Where are the answers you have related to X? – Roboprog Jan 14 '10 at 2:23
@John Thanks for the image :) – AntonioCS Jan 25 '10 at 12:05

You know you can click on the tags on a user page, and see all questions and answers that user has ever provided in that tag, right?

Nope. Didn't know that. Still think it would be nice to see the tags of the answers. – AntonioCS Dec 29 '09 at 9:03
