I used to retag some questions, in particular for probability-tagged questions misusing the "distribution-theory" tag.

As I haven't got the "Edit" priviledge, I don't understand why I currently don't see the "retag" button anymore. This applies to every "open" question.

  • $\begingroup$ you can still retag with edit button, no peer review applies. $\endgroup$ – user59671 May 21 '13 at 21:10
  • $\begingroup$ @CutieKrait As far as I remember this counts for only one character and I have to edit at least xx characters. $\endgroup$ – Vobo May 21 '13 at 21:13
  • $\begingroup$ why don't you try to retag a post with edit button. just retag don't change the content. $\endgroup$ – user59671 May 21 '13 at 21:20
  • $\begingroup$ @CutieKrait I got it now, I have to add an editing comment with at least 10 characters like "Edited tags" ... $\endgroup$ – Vobo May 21 '13 at 21:22

If you hover your mouse over the tags, you'll see a hidden button which suddenly appears.

This button says "edit tags", and you can use it to retag things without going through the edit dialog.

  • $\begingroup$ Ok, got it now. Wouldn't it be good to change the retag privilege description? $\endgroup$ – Vobo May 21 '13 at 21:24

    $\begingroup$ @Asaf This was a mistake from the SE devs. That button is only expected to show for 10k+. See MSO#182332. It has disappeared now for <10k. (I think this practice is in place to have some sort of control on retags by <10k (namely, that the question gets bumped).) $\endgroup$ – Lord_Farin Jun 5 '13 at 6:56
