I saw a question which was wrongfully tagged with several irrelevant tags, one of which is the in which I have closure superpowers. I retagged the question as in which I also have closure superpowers.

Soon after the OP admitted to having asked the question yesterday and just posted it again because they didn't receive an answer. I voted to close as a duplicate, but I was notified that while I have closure powers in the set theory tag, since I was the one editing it in, they don't apply here.

Shouldn't my powers in the original tagging have applied?

  • $\begingroup$ in the movie Thor, I think Kat Dennings calls it Meow-Meow. See if I can substantiate that. "Darcy: [mispronounces Mjölnir] Myeuh-muh? What's Myeuh-muh? Darcy: Look! Look, it's "Myeuh-muh"! [points to a mythology book, specifically a page with a drawing of Mjölnir]" imdb.com/character/ch0188123/quotes $\endgroup$ – Will Jagy Nov 23 '15 at 18:15

No, as meanwhile the deciding factor are the current tags, but the voter must not have been involved in the tagging.

Source: It looks like the duplicate banner changed. How does it work now?

    $\begingroup$ Well. I'm not retagging anything before vetting something is a duplicate. Not to mention that it's annoying the retag was overwritten by subsequent edits. $\endgroup$ – Asaf Karagila Nov 23 '15 at 16:13
