In particular, for a question, do we add tags based on the accepted answer?

    do you have an example of this being done, or what you'd like to see? – phantom42 Aug 1 '15 at 3:00
  • @phantom42: I don't have a link, but I mean, would we add the author or the work if the tag exists, once the answer is known? – ThePopMachine Aug 1 '15 at 14:39
  • In that case, your suggestion is a dupe of the one Richard linked to. Unfortunately, we never came to a clear consensus in the issue. Feel free to bump it and maybe something can be better decided this time. – phantom42 Aug 1 '15 at 20:45

Generally no, post-editing an accepted question is discouraged since it doesn't show what the accepted answerer had to work with ;-)

The sole exception I can think of would be where the original tags were wildly inaccurate or selected in error by an inexperienced user.

For example, I recall an incident where I deleted the tag where the OP had put both AND . Obviously it couldn't be both.
