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

If you look at the tag wiki for [ternary-operator] you'll see none displayed. However, if you check the history, I have an accepted entry there.

The problem is I included a terse excerpt which was rejected.

I'm not sure if this is a bug or not, so I've marked it [discussion].

@GraceNote Thanks for adding relevant tags. I was thinking about which of the required tags to add and totally forgot about other ones :-( – Mark Hurd Mar 15 '11 at 4:35

yeah this is the way I designed it, I wanted to make sure we do the best we can to ensure we do not lose information in these cases. Its a total edge case but still I did not want to lose effort.

So the information is there ... just hidden, waiting for the next editor to bring it out.

Tag wikis without excerpts are pretty useless, so I did not want to pretend we have a wiki.

I do not think it is a bug. An excerpt can be suggested by one person and a wiki by another.
So the pair acceptance cannot work.
Your wiki suggestion was accepted and your excerpt was only accepted by one so it is rejected.
Try again ? , maybe they could have improved on it / edited also.
