I just tried to post a question to Meta and received:

Oops! Your question couldn't be submitted because:

  • must include one of these tags -- bug feature-request discussion support

Why are these tags required? What are the proper usages for each one? I wasn't able to find any documentation about these tags? Should this be in the FAQ?

  • Go here to vote to add 'Retag-Request' as one of the mandatories: meta.stackexchange.com/questions/15699/… – Lance Roberts Feb 6 '10 at 5:30
  • @Lance Roberts: I followed your link but I don't know what I'm supposed to do, I can not submit a question. – Marco Demaio Aug 14 '10 at 14:39
  • @Marco, All you can really do is upvote the question that the lihk takes you to. As it gets more upvotes, it gets more attention from the team. – Lance Roberts Aug 14 '10 at 18:08

These required tags help keep meta organized and on topic:

Indicates a reproducible problem on the site that you believe is due to a mistake, malfunction, or programming error.

Indicates a proposal for a new feature on the site, or requests a change to an existing feature.

This tag indicates that the question may not necessarily have a clear-cut right or wrong answer and is often subjective. If it's not a bug or feature-request, it is probably a discussion.

Indicates a request for assistance with one of the site's features.

    support: ...or requesting a janitorial task, such as a mass-retag. – Ether Feb 5 '10 at 21:04
  • Thanks. So from your answer I would assume that this question should be support not discussion, am I correct? Also, are these tags described somewhere and I just missed them? – The Unhandled Exception Feb 5 '10 at 21:06

    @Josh: Yes, this is more of a support question. These tags really should be in the FAQ, I suppose. – user27414 Feb 5 '10 at 21:10
