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'm having this same problem, but when I remove the tag to edit a post, it says that the "status-completed moderator tag must be present"

Is this intended behavior? The net result is that you can't edit a post that's been marked with a moderator tag

There was a recent change to this -- I tried rolling back a mod tag edit and failed. Hold on, let me find the question. – Jon Seigel Dec 22 '10 at 4:10
Here we go: -- I tried to roll it back in revision 10, but it didn't work. I then rolled back to revision 1, which did remove the tag, so I guess all the kinks haven't been worked out of whatever was changed. I'm assuming that this has something to do with your problem, though it may be unrelated. – Jon Seigel Dec 22 '10 at 4:17

While the error message is bad, I assume the "can't edit" part is intentional; this prevents you from changing the question after a moderator has already addressed it. – Powerlord Jan 3 '11 at 18:36
FWIW, we can still retag (at least using the in-page retagging tool): – Jon Seigel Jan 6 '11 at 2:37

This should now be fixed. Sorry for the regression, we were removing some duplicated code, and this is one of those edge conditions.
