The site has this note right now that there is an ongoing maintenance:

This site is currently in read-only mode. We’ll return with full functionality soon. Follow @StackStatus, visit our status blog or search our recent meta posts on the topic for more info.

I want to ask, why is it that the link for the recent meta posts are for tags and even though they are the same?

Edit: I noticed that the tag names are and , but it seems as if they are synonyms now. This should probably be fixed later.

    I am not seeing the notice here on MSE. But, yes, tag synonyms. The message in the banner could probably be updated.

  • I'm from Math.SE. Can I ask if you could check the site? Mar 18 at 5:19
  • Ah, yes, I see it on Mathematics. Sorry, I thought by "this site", you meant the site where you posted the question, which is Meta Stack Exchange.

  • Oh, sorry. I forgot to edit that part, but for others who would change the tags if necessary, please edit that part to avoid trivial editing. Mar 18 at 5:21
  • Although it's odd because some sites like Code Review are not read-only. @CodyGray Mar 18 at 5:36
  • @for-the-love-of-soupless That's probably a bug. See this answer for more details. Mar 18 at 6:03

    Does this answer your question? math.SE has been stuck in read-only mode for 7 hours

    Why are we voting to close this? That link does indeed search for two instances of the maintenance tag after site-maintenance was made a synonym of maintenance, which could stand to be updated to just search for maintenance. This isn't a duplicate of the currently-proposed dupe at all.

  • To clear things, I asked about why Math.SE was still read-only at that time as a side question. My main point was the link found when the site was read-only. Additional information for @Spevacus. Mar 19 at 5:35
