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

Currently under tags edit box there is only this info:
Combine multiple words into single-words, space to separate up to 5 tags (voting bug)

I think it should have more hints to prevent creation of new, improper tags all over again.

Something like forbidding use of already consolidated tags (vc++, msvc++ or visual-c - choose one and forbid other two) – bobobobo Aug 9 '09 at 14:15

A message dissuading people from creating new tags would be a good idea, perhaps "Try to use appropriate existing tags before creating new ones"

Also perhaps mention of how to pluralise tags, say exception or exceptions?

Even just a few examples (and anti-examples) would be good. The retag thread is full of such ;-p
