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

I could add a tag for this question, although it is locked:

The direct edit link isn't functional, so I assume it's a bug.

Nice find. Now how can I exploit this while it still works? :P – Tyler Carter May 4 '10 at 10:38

Dang. Wish I had 10k on SO... I could have made a big dent in [not-programming-related]. – Jon Seigel May 4 '10 at 16:21

Alas, we had to fix this - tag editing is only allowed on locked questions by moderators.

Good find, though!

This fix will be pushed tonight. – Jarrod Dixon May 4 '10 at 15:56
Damn - let's hope that the "belongs-on-" tags remain at 0 on Stack Overflow and Super User. – ChrisF May 4 '10 at 16:13
