If I'm editing or retagging a question, I don't like to have to go into the question page itself. This is particularly cumbersome when doing librarian work - retagging multiple questions to conform to naming schemes.

I think this could be problematic.

In order to correctly re-tag a question, one needs to have a full understanding of exactly what's being asked and all of the context. For longer questions that don't fit 100% into the small letterbox visible on the main questions page, this could lead to a spate of bad (though well-intentioned) re-tagging.

I don't think it's too much to ask a user to click through to the full question in all it's glory, with all of the clarifying comments and gory detail, before allowing them to give it an edit.


Agreed on this can we have a separate retag option (as you get before you can edit)
