I'm not yet used to the convenient retag functionality, so when I went to add a tag to a question via an edit I got this message:
Oops! Your edit couldn't be submitted because:
You have the privilege to retag questions; to suggest an edit please include a change to the title and/or the body as well
This is sort of broken. I mean, the system has determined that:
- I want to edit only the tags
- I have the right to edit tags
Why doesn't it just go ahead and do a retag for me? Why force the user to discard the change and do it through the "proper" interface? Seems pretty ack-basswards.
I propose that when an edit consisting only of a retag is attempted by a user with retag privileges, the edit is treated like a retag and the question gets successfully retagged.
I am not proposing that the retag attempted through the edit interface be pushed through as a suggested edit. I am proposing that it be pushed through as a retag, since that's what it is. This is only about usability; it is not about the workflow for suggested edits, which I think is fine as-is.
