  • If you have edit privileges, then mouse over the right of the tags and you'll see an "edit tags" button. Otherwise, just click the "retag" button.

  • I retagged one question, but that won't get rid of the xxx-holic tag, and I don't have edit privileges. Is that what you meant?

  • Tags with no questions are automatically purged after a few days.

  • I think your edit went into the suggested edit queue. Though you should be able to retag without going through that queue.

We had the same problem with : Request for tag hell-sing to be converted to hellsing. The solution is to remove from all of the questions, wait a little bit until is removed from the system, and then retag them all with . There's probably an easier way for moderators to do this, but we don't have pro temp mods yet.

For now, I've retagged all of the questions with . I've also saved the old tag wiki for . Once the system deletes they can be retagged as (I'll check back in a few hours if no one else fixes it before then), and I'll put the tag wiki back for the new tag.

Edit: I've replaced the interim tag with , so this should be resolved now. Tag wiki description will be back up once my edit gets peer reviewed.

  • Oh right I forgot that there's a tag collapsing mechanism to remove things like dashes and such. It's something you don't encounter often on a site like SO where all the tags are pretty much set.
