Yesterday, I was able to see the "retag" option beneath questions (and successfully retagged a question), but today I'm not seeing that option. Anyone know why I wouldn't be seeing this option anymore? Retag only requires 1 reputation in the beta.
This is sort of a common issue that people face in the UI as they gain more privileges. Here's some helpful information from this Meta Stack Overflow post:
Until you hit 1000 reputation and gain the privilege to edit questions and answers, the only way you can make an edit is as a suggested edit.
However, the privilege to retag questions is gained at a mere 200 reputation. Thus, for users who have between 200 and 999 reputation, they'll need to use the "edit tags" link that appears to the right of the tags.
Once you hit 1000 reputation and you have full privileges to edit questions and answers, there's no need for a separate link to edit only tags, and at that point in time, you'll be able to use the edit link under the question to edit tags.
In fact, between 1K and 2K reputation, the only option to edit tags is to actually edit the question. Once you hit 2K, the "edit tags" link comes back.
Keep in mind that, for the next few days, the reputation requirements are set very low. Anyone can retag a question, editing privileges are awarded at 500 reputation.
I edited the above quoted material to reference the privilege levels in the public beta.
Relatively new to this, but you are granted various permissions when you pass certain milestones. This includes the permission may be granted to edit questions (which allows me to re-tag).
Is it possible that once you are granted editing privileges, the retagging feature is no longer necessary; no longer appears?
I noticed mention on another SE that all the sites had been put into 'read only mode' for a brief while. This may be why you couldn't retag. Here is a link to one of the discussions about their fix-ups. I'm sure there're more discussions about it if you look around. I was in chat a couple days ago and everyone suddenly got kicked off. That again was because the 'big guys' were doing some migrating. Someone entered the chat and said sorry and explained what they were doing.
The 'retag' option is showing on my screen right now so it must be fixed.
