When adding more than 5 tags, we can't post or submit edits. However, when exceeding the length limit of 25 characters for a tag, no such restriction is in place.

This leads to some broken tags like , , , etc....

Could we have the same restriction from posting/submitting here as for the tag count limit? Or alternatively at least a warning?

OK, we now disallow submission on new questions and edit to questions, when any tag length exceeds the maximum (25 characters).


I agree, especially since I contributed to the [visual-web-developer-expr] broken tag issue by accident, only realizing it months later when someone edited my tags.
