At 500 reputation, one earns the privilege of retagging. It is allegedly an alternative to editing a post (which requires edit approval), yet I have never seen this retagging option. The "Retag" page claims there is a "retag" menu option under the post. There is none for me, nor anywhere else I can see (below tags, on the edit page, above the post, near the profile picture).

So my question is... is this a bug? Am I missing some obvious option (in my profile, say) to enable this functionality? Is my 546 reputation not enough to enable this privilege I've received notifications claiming I should have?

To be perfectly clear, this question is not the problem I'm encountering, as I can see "edit" on every post, but never "retag". This question is also not the problem, as I understand there should be a "retag" option, but all that appears is "share", "edit", and "flag".

Kill the Retag option, use just Edit

Retag is gone. It has ceased to be. The "please go back and click the retag link instead of edit" message is gone. We will (not) miss it.

Editing tags only will result in the same behavior as retag, except for the message (low enough rep will put it in review queue for suggested edits, having the retag questions privilege will make it a regular edit.

  • \$\begingroup\$ Thank you! The description of the privilege just hasn't been updated to reflect that change, then, which is really confusing. Thanks for the explanation! \$\endgroup\$ – Attackfarm May 29 '13 at 3:22

I am not sure, what might be the case. But I always use "edit", then I simply add or remove tags.. Works for me :)

  • \$\begingroup\$ I was under the impression that using "edit" requires approval, while the "retag" option does not. At least, this is what the specific privilege page says here: gamedev.stackexchange.com/privileges/retag-questions \$\endgroup\$ – Attackfarm May 29 '13 at 0:15
  • \$\begingroup\$ Today I have edited a question, adding an additional tag. Haven't known that it wasn't approved. My bad :) \$\endgroup\$ – Mikolaj Marcisz May 29 '13 at 0:17

The retag option is hidden until you hover over the tags themselves. It's not in the section at the bottom.

enter image description here

At least, that's for me.

  • \$\begingroup\$ Shucks, I was hopeful this was the problem, but it wasn't. =( Unless I'm hovering "incorrectly" (is that even possible?), this doesn't seem to be the case for a non-mod, or at least not for me. Hovering simply shows a small black box with the Wiki summary, link to the faq, top users, etc. No "edit tags" option. \$\endgroup\$ – Attackfarm May 29 '13 at 0:13
