I wrote a question, and there was a message specifically saying that nothing was wrong with the question, and then when I submitted it, I was told that I needed more rep to create a tag, so I changed the tag and resubmitted it, and I guess I submitted too quickly, because I then got a captcha.

Seems like "Having more clear notification that you're using a tag that hasn't been created yet" and "resubmitting a question that didn't go through shouldn't trigger captcha" would be ideas to consider.

    I'd split the two ideas you mention into two separate requests. The first one makes perfect sense to me; the whole point of clicking "review question" is to take care of issues with the question before you try to post it, and having tag prompts in the review stage would make that easier. However, your second suggestion may not be viable, since bots and abusive users prevent us from having nice things. – Sonic the Anonymous Hedgehog Mar 22 at 3:58
  • Accumulation, creating a tag without enough permission probably wasn't the cause; resubmitting too quickly could possibly be a contributing factor. Most likely is that Your IP address is shared (work / public Wi-Fi / evil twin) and another account has been flagged at that address. It was the submitting that triggered the reCAPTCHA; which is partly decided by secret processes. See also: Permission, reCAPTCHAs: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ReCAPTCHA meta.stackexchange.com/tags/recaptcha/info - worse if it's broken. – Rob Mar 22 at 14:48
  • @Rob I didn't say that the tag was the cause, directly. But it was the cause of me resubmitting, while seems to be the cause. – Acccumulation Mar 22 at 14:57
