# Deleting Tags after being created

Is it possible to delete a tag after it has been created. For example when I post a question under the tag, Analytic number theory sometimes, Analytic only appears in the Tag column and the Analytic tag gets created. So if I want to delete the tag, how can I do it?

• Use dashes instead of spaces; thus, analytic-number-theory . As for your question, only mods can delete tags IIRC. Nov 24 '10 at 2:00
• I thought that this was already answered somewhere on meta; but I was not able to find the question now....? Jan 10 '14 at 9:43
