So in light of a new question about Thor: Ragnarok, which was really asking for information that will come out (and was answered by) material in Avengers: Infinity War, I decided to create a tag for that film. I figured this would allow those who are sensitive to spoilers to be able to ignore the tag. Anyway...

I went ahead and created .

However, most fans of the MCU will quickly notice my mistake. The actual name of the film is Avengers: Infinity War, not plural...

I went to try to create the correct tag and allow the misspelled tag to self delete but I was presented with this message:

tag creation flag

You are attempting to create the tag [avengers-infinity-war]; however the tag [avengers-infinity-wars] already exists! If you think this new tag should be allowed, raise it on meta.

So here I am on meta... what is the course of actions or events to correct this?

Title note: Obviously the fix was pretty easy, we just have a habit of making silly titles for our tag questions.

  • -1 for the silly title.

Since the tag has only been used on one question so far, an easy solution would have been:

  • remove the incorrect tag;
  • wait a day for it to be automatically wiped from the system along with other zero-use tags;
  • create the correct tag instead.

But since you've raised this on meta and I'm here, I went ahead and used mod powers to rename to .

    Thanks for being here so quickly! Even better that it is related to a Thor question and you got to "hammer" it.... the small things bring me chuckles....

  • Just out of curiosity, what is the correct course of action if the tag in question is the only tag on its only question (so that it can't be removed)?

  • @Kevin Then I guess you could flag that question for a mod to rename the tag.
