Mistagged questions should be retaggable immediately.

  • is my answer enough for a status-completed here? – waffles Feb 24 '11 at 7:38
  • @waffles: Sure :) I hope, yet to be tested. Now to find such a case. – leppie Feb 24 '11 at 8:17
  • Here's such a case: stackoverflow.com/questions/7287434/… (needs juce and performance tags, not cpu-usage) – Ben Voigt Sep 2 '11 at 18:28

Well I just fixed this and a slew of similar requests.

If you would like to edit a post that has a pending edit and can't wait, you can click the Improve Edit button:

This button allows you to "edit the edit", add tags and whatnot.

At the end of the process when you submit the edit, the Community user will accept the suggested edit AND your edit will be applied:

We still disable the quick-retag menu, but offer you a way around the issue if you are in a rush.

    Ah YES I like that. There have been many times where I saw and accepted a pending edit only so I could have a chance at editing it myself more completely. Sometimes being turned away since I am the first to accept. – Jeff Mercado Feb 24 '11 at 10:07
  • @waffles: problem is, once you vote to approve the edit, the "Improve" function is no longer available. – Ben Voigt Sep 2 '11 at 18:29
  • @Ben so what you suggest? If you have a concrete suggestion, a new feature request can be a good idea. :) – Shadow Wizard is Ear For You Dec 13 '16 at 11:51

If you do not have the rep to change the tags without a pending edit do it.

If you can't then well wait until the post is edit and then fix it.

    I got over 30k rep on SO. I approved the edit, but it was still waiting for more votes. – leppie Feb 22 '11 at 9:15
  • @leppie is there any other edits waiting. What question is that I will make a small edit then see what happens when you aorove it. – Benny Feb 22 '11 at 9:18
  • It has been retagged now, but this was the question: stackoverflow.com/questions/5075889/… Needed a perl tag. – leppie Feb 22 '11 at 9:30
  • @leppie the tag was added before my asnwer – Benny Feb 22 '11 at 9:34
  • @leppie: I did the same thing, approved an edit, then wanted to fix the tags. Still not possible. – Ben Voigt Sep 2 '11 at 18:29
