Trying to post a question about R in stack overflow I am getting a message saying:

Oops! Your question couldn't be submitted because:

you need at least one valid tag; see a list of popular tags

Although I select R as tag I still cannot post....

Any idea how I can go around?

    Can you take a screen shot where you selected the tag and post it as an edit to this question? It should just work once you've selected a valid tag, and R is a valid tag. – Tim Post Feb 19 '12 at 17:43
  • Like everyone's said, r is a valid tag and this should work just fine. But really, this should be a definite edge case. I imagine that in 99% of cases there are at least two appropriate tags for a question. – Cody Gray Feb 20 '12 at 2:09

You can't work around it - there's no way to submit an untagged question.

Make sure when you type r into the tag box you then click on the tag in question to get a blue tag like this:

That's your clue that you've chosen a valid tag. As I understand it, it should work if you just type in r, but it's worth checking.

  • That's an impressive FHRC you have there! Did you have to use all nine of your fingers? ;) – Lix Feb 19 '12 at 17:50

    @Lix I used the GIMP - so yes. There are so many floating panels I'd never hold them all down without all these fingers I have. No idea how people with just eight fingers cope! – user142852 Feb 19 '12 at 17:52
