I see no reason to show “at least one tag is required” near the tag field because almost same text will be appeared if you’ll try post a question without a tag:

Also it’s not truly request due to restrictions of meta sites, where you must use at least one specific tag:

    I don't know about this. The red text is an error message. You have to click the submit button before you even see that message. Wouldn't it be best to let the user know beforehand that at least one tag is required? Thus saving the user an extra click. – Kodos Johnson Sep 13 at 17:15
  • A compromise would be to remove that message and change the placeholder text to say something like "type at least one tag" – Kodos Johnson Sep 13 at 17:18

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.

placeholder text (within tag field): "must include at least one of (bug feature-request discussion support)"

    Is it possible to add commas between tags in the placeholder? – älёxölüt Sep 17 at 17:47
  • Is it possible? Sure. Why would that be an improvement? – Shog9 Sep 17 at 17:49
  • since items in list should be separated by commas in English, isn’t it? – älёxölüt Sep 17 at 17:53
  • it's possible, but not needed. FWIW, you can separate tags with commas in the editor too, but they just get stripped. – Shog9 Sep 17 at 17:55

    editor displays tags like labels, not just raw text. But placeholder is pure text, I think such sentences should use grammatically correct typography. – älёxölüt Sep 17 at 18:02
  • Moreover I suggested to use square brackets around tag names in raw string. – älёxölüt Sep 17 at 18:14
  • The editor displays tags with special formatting, but they're input / edited as text, @alexolut. Try it: you can type (or paste) feature-request tags design or feature-request,tags,design or even [feature-request] [tags] [design] into the editor and it'll be accepted (and normalized to a space-separated list). If you think it'd be easier for folks to understand a comma-separated list, post a feature-request - you might be right. – Shog9 Sep 17 at 21:36
