I've noticed that the background text "Type a tag" at the bottom of the "Ask Question" page is cut off:

"Typ" instead of "Type a tag"

Reproduced in Microsoft Edge.

  • Cross-site dupe on Meta.SO: Tags input placeholder text cut off. Sep 13, 2018 at 13:30
  • @Xufox this is a Stack Exchange wide issue, and this is the proper place for it to be addressed.

    @Malachi I just linked to the issue as reported on Meta.SO. I didn’t stop anyone from addressing it here. Sep 13, 2018 at 17:11

    @Malachi It's perfectly normal to link to the same bug report on another per-site meta, so that when employees tag this question as completed, they also tag the other one. Sep 13, 2018 at 20:50
  • @SonictheInclusiveHedgehog much better is to allow closing the question as cross-site duplicate. To prevent duplication on any level. Sep 14, 2018 at 3:06

Fixed on Friday Sept. 14 - code intended for the internal Teams editor snuck into the public sites without associated styles (or consideration of what guidance is needed for tagging on public sites). Jisoo corrected this by limiting this behavior to Teams.
