In the moderation tools on Stack Overflow, I found a question introducing a new tag: [excell].
Obviously a typo.

But I can't retag it because it was migrated to Super User and apparently deleted there.

Is there a way to retag migrated questions by non-admins? if not, would someone please fix this?

    I fixed the typo in the tag. Thanks for bringing it to our attention. I also wasn't aware that people couldn't flag on migrated posts, which seems at least mildly annoying. I guess we're supposed to flag on the destination site instead? – Bill the Lizard Dec 26 '09 at 16:12
  • Thank you! Yeah flagging on the destination seems reasonable. – Nadia Dec 26 '09 at 17:12

    @Bill: Could you remove [google-dart] too? [dart] is used instead. stackoverflow.com/questions/tagged/google-dart – Jonas Oct 18 '11 at 22:46
  • @Jonas: Sure, no problem. – Bill the Lizard Oct 19 '11 at 2:07

Currently, no. There is no way for non-moderators to retag/edit a migrated question on the departure site.

Migrated questions are essentially locked on the site they started on.

This means you can't even flag for moderator attention about any tagged typos or frowned upon tags.
