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

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.

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.
