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 am quite confused now. I am not sure how much reputation I require to create a new tag.

From this question I came to know that I need 250 points to create my own Tag. But I already have the sufficient points, but when I try to create a new tag I am getting a message that I need 1500 rep points. Can anyone clarify this.

Creating tags requires

  • 1500 reputation on Stack Overflow (due to the # of users)
  • 500 reputation on Meta Stack Exchange
  • 300 reputation on Graduated Sites that have their custom design but that are still young and relatively small
  • 150 reputation on public betas and graduated sites without a custom design

The question you linked to is years old and things have changed since then.
