On a site on which I have a high rep score, I am able to edit tags easily using the "Edit tags" button:

With Edit tags

However, on this site (at time of writing), I have < 3000 rep, which is not enough to see the "Edit tags" button:

Without Edit tags

I have been unable to track down any information on what rep score you need to unlock the "Edit tags" button. How much rep do I need before I can see this?

  • I didn't read that tag correctly; of course this is a [support] question, not [feature-request] (I think I somehow misremembered it as "[feature]", as in, "I'm asking about a feature", as per the support tag description). I feel I should know better...

Per the Privileges page you need 10k for the access to moderator tools privilege.

Inline tag editing

Finally, you now have the ability to do inline tag edits on questions: a new "Edit tags" link will appear next to the tags on every question; clicking it brings up an inline editor for the tags on that question:

  • That's the one! I would have never associated it with mod tools, but in hindsight I can see how it could be thought of as one. Usually I'd wait longer to accept, but this is one of those "open-close" questions with only one right answer. Thanks!

    @NathanS the privilege titles aren’t entirely accurate for everything they cover.
