Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 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

When you search for a tag, a list of "Related Tags" shows up. Clicking on a related tag will add it to the query and search for original and the related tag.

This is a nice feature, but right now, it pretty much can only be discovered by accident. None of the other tags on the page (i.e. the interesting/ignored tags directly underneath it, and the tags on the search results) show this behaviour.

Right now, there is absolutely no indication at all in the UI that clicking on a tag from the "related" list is any different from clicking on a tag from the identically styled "Interesting Tags" list directly below (or am I missing something?).

So I propose to simply change Related Tags to something more telling like

  • Combine with...
  • Show only results containing...
  • or something to that effect...

The alternative solution would be to extend the special behaviour to all tags on the page, but I don't think that this would be all that useful.
