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.

Those of us who enjoy formatting a little too much have really liked the recent introduction of the tags in posts feature. There's a minor inconsistency with the display of sponsored tags, though.

On SO, the company redgate sponsors the tag . As you can see, here on Meta, the icon doesn't show up in the tag. There's a screenshot of what the icon "should" look like at this question.

I'm guessing this is by-design, actually. If faithful replication was the goal, the tag background color would be SO blue, not Meta gray. But it seemed to be worth reporting just in case.

I'm kinda torn as to whether or not it should show up, but +1 for raising the issue. – Jon Seigel Dec 6 '10 at 19:13
All I've got to say is 'Thank f*** they don't show up on MSO ;b'. But I've got beef with ads in tags. See meta.stackexchange.com/questions/23955/adobe-sponsored-tags/… – David HAust Dec 6 '10 at 22:07

Yeah, I don't really think its worth the effort.

We don't generally export "ad data" anyway. For instance, sponsored tags are not reflected as such in the API.
