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.

The bugs tab is a good place to see the most "active" bugs. However, if "status completed" is taking the bug away from this view, understandably, "status norepro" doesn't remove it.

In a way, if a bug is local, and can't be reproduced by the team, shouldn't it be taken away from this list?

What happens if it gets reproduced later, by someone other than the team and the originator? We'll have a ton of duplicate, hard-to-reproduce bug requests because no one saw them the first time.

Question can be updated, or put to front with a new answer. The tag can be taken away then by a member of the team, and it would come back to the list, I think. – Gnoupi May 25 '10 at 18:38
Duplicate irreproducible bug reports didn't seem to plague Meta that badly back before we had the Bugs tab. – Grace Note May 25 '10 at 18:40
I agree -- sometimes this tag gets added a little too zealously and there is a repro case, but perhaps not documented very well. If the post really truly is irrelevant, it should be closed, which should remove it from the list. – Ether May 25 '10 at 20:02
