Err, why does it say ... (voting bug) under the Tags input, on the Ask a Question page?

  • @Frenzy please don't leave such things in the post, it's pointless. – Shadow Wizard is Ear For You Mar 7 '17 at 10:08
  • @ShadowWizard I'll take note. Thanks. – Frenzy Li Mar 7 '17 at 10:09

As Marc Gravell said, they are examples...

Maybe it should say it should explicitly say it is an example like (eg: voting bugs) just to be clear.

    And perhaps (as per meta.stackexchange.com/questions/4377/…) it should include something about the dashed-tags ;-p – Marc Gravell Jul 10 '09 at 23:12
  • I agree. It should definitely have at least an example of a dashed tag. – DeadHead Jul 10 '09 at 23:17
  • "As stated" - it does mention they are examples anywhere, but your second paragraph is right - it should be! – dbr Jul 10 '09 at 23:20
  • Oh, I meant as stated by Marc Gravell. – DeadHead Jul 10 '09 at 23:39

It looks like it selects a few at random (or has been hard-coded with appropriate examples); on SO it is python c# ruby, and on SF secure ssh raid.

On MSO, we've been talking about voting and bugs, apparently ;-p

  • Err.. That makes sense, I don't think I ever noticed the example tags before - I only really read the message because of meta.stackexchange.com/questions/4377/… and when I did "voting bug" seemed utterly random.. – dbr Jul 10 '09 at 23:18

    It does sound like an error message that has made it to the UI, doesn't it ;-p – Marc Gravell Jul 10 '09 at 23:29
