Any meta tag that have a preset definition (mainly the and the , but there are possibly others that I don't know of, including maybe some that are not on metas) will take you to a nonexistent page like https://meta.stackoverflow.com/posts//revisions when their tag wiki excerpt history is viewed. For larger sites, this is generaly not going to be found as the excerpts have all been edited, but smaller sites will experience this more often. For example, is broken right now on meta SuperUser. The issue goes away when the excerpt is edited.

This was prompted by my meta SO post.

  • I also get this bug for any required-tag on Sci-Fi & Fantasy Meta. – alexwlchan Oct 16 '14 at 19:26

    It happens to all meta-tags with standard preset description. – nicael Oct 16 '14 at 19:42
  • @shadow-wizard I've changed the tag back to meta-tags because this appears to apply to meta-tags with a preset description, not just moderator-tags as was previously stated. (And I don't know of a better description as there is no default-tags or something like that). Though if you have a better idea that would work out well. – Pokechu22 Oct 16 '14 at 22:01
  • Just tags then, since meta tags are a different thing. (it doesn't mean tags used in meta sites) – Shadow The Curly Braced Wizard Oct 16 '14 at 22:10
  • @Pokechu22 That's actually not the appropriate use of that tag. The term "meta-tags" is for "tags which describe something other than the question's content" (per the tag wiki). It has nothing to do with Meta. To discuss tags on Meta, you would tag with both tags and meta. – animuson Oct 19 '14 at 0:58
