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

Over on SO several questions have been tagged as when they should have been classified as instead. What's the proper process for requesting they get retagged properly? I lack sufficient mojo to do it myself and I've flagged the questions, but that doesn't seem to be getting processed. Needless to say, searching for help on style issues with the search gurus probably isn't efficient.

compass has 257 questions, while compass-css only has 15. Why is your way the correct one? – Robert Harvey Jul 22 '11 at 20:05
Because compass is dealing with the lucene search utility and compass-css is the one dealing with css? Thus the last sentence in the OP? – OldTroll Jul 22 '11 at 20:06
Ah, sorry. I forgot to put on my secret decoder ring before I read the last sentence. – Robert Harvey Jul 22 '11 at 20:07
Which is what triggered my wanting to retag the questions, I was grovelling over the compass questions to see what sorts of problems people commonly ran into and because disoriented until I read the tag descriptions. – OldTroll Jul 22 '11 at 20:09

There are 4 ways:
1. if you got enough reputation : edit the question, and change tags
2. again if you got enough reputation, there is a retag option
3. if you do not have enough reputation (or logged as anonymous), you can still suggest the edit
4. flag the question

You can suggest an edit yourself - as long as the tag you wish to use already exists. If you don't have enough reputation to create a tag the only thing you can do (apart from nothing) is raise a flag.

All flags will be looked at eventually, however, there's no guarantee that the moderator who sees your flag will agree.

It's pretty obvious that the questions are improperly tagged, but that does illustrate the point for opinion issues. – OldTroll Jul 22 '11 at 20:04
