Hmm, no similar experience here. I just re-tagged this question a little to test it ... All worked OK

@Cyborg - you are not alone. And I've logged it with JIRA, as per discussions in the [meta] conversation - ["Retagging - is it worth it?"][1] It's not just a problem with chrome, either. Or XP. @Fatherjack - you are not alone either. EDIT: [My call ref in JIRA][2] - please dive in and say it's happening to you too.

@Cyborg, nah, it's not a duplicate. It sounds like this issue has been around (in one form or another) for quite a while, so upvoting Thomas' Jira item would be a good idea.

the FAQ is lying! You are offered the re-tag part, but it fails with an error. Once you hit 2000 rep, you can edit anyway, so re-tag works

So, as far as the Admin controls are concerned, re-tagging definite is activated at 500 Karma. The error is a separate issue (Which I'll look into now). Editing questions becomes available at 2000 Karma. Your best bet is to head over and upvote Thomas' [JIRA item]( http://jira.osqa.net/browse/OSQA-424).

I had been having the same issue but just tested to see if I could retag your question. Before when I was >500 but <2000 I would get the error. Now if I edit your question and add the tag I am ok.
