It's possible to edit tags of deleted questions. I tried it here: https://math.stackexchange.com/questions/835159/math-expectation-playing-a-game My new tag was accepted although the question is deleted.

Is this a bug?

At first glance it also seemed possible to cast another close vote, but finally the system realized that the question is already deleted.

Yes, you can edit deleted posts; this MSE answer describes the situations in which a user is able to edit a deleted post (basically if the user can see the deleted post, and the post is not a question which the user was the author of and self-deleted, then the user can edit it).

  • $\begingroup$ However, since I (in my capacity as a ♦-moderator) was the one who (unilaterally, mind you) deleted that non-question, you (and every other non-♦-moderator) will have difficulty undeleting it. $\endgroup$
