Moderators apply status tags, such as , to questions on Meta when a bug/feature/request/etc. is resolved. But the number of tags is limited to 5.

So what happens if my question already has 5 tags? Should I stick to a maximum of 4 tags in case my question gets resolved?

(This question should really be on Meta Meta Stack Overflow, but I'm asking here because that site doesn't exist yet.)

    Surely moderators will find a way out and delete the least relevant tag if there is a need to do so. – Bart Aug 1 '12 at 10:36

    Surprised is has no been suggested before - I think those moderator tags should not count towards the 5 tags limit as they do not describe the question itself just its "status", kind of "meta tags". – ShaWiz Aug 1 '12 at 12:49
  • @ShaWizDowArd: And now it has 5 tags. Uh-oh... – Mechanical snail Aug 1 '12 at 13:31
  • Yep but there's no status tags for discussion or support, only for bugs or feature requests. :) – ShaWiz Aug 1 '12 at 13:32

No, you should not. Just add the relevant tags as you would do with your questions on other Stack Exchange sites.

The moderator will remove a tag to add the one s/he needs. Keep in mind that the "status-*" tags are normally applied just to feature requests, and bug reports. Sometimes, they are applied to questions tagged , but that is rare.
