Those of us who enjoy formatting a little too much have really liked the recent introduction of the tags in posts feature. There's a minor inconsistency with the display of sponsored tags, though.

On SO, the company redgate sponsors the tag . As you can see, here on Meta, the icon doesn't show up in the tag. There's a screenshot of what the icon "should" look like at this question.

I'm guessing this is by-design, actually. If faithful replication was the goal, the tag background color would be SO blue, not Meta gray. But it seemed to be worth reporting just in case.

Yeah, I don't really think its worth the effort.

We don't generally export "ad data" anyway. For instance, sponsored tags are not reflected as such in the API.
