I just created a new tag for ; there is a growing number of questions on this kind of grid or sampling system and no tag to gather them.

However, I can not find any mechanism to add a description to this tag. Is it something only available to moderators? Or is there some other way of doing it?

When you click on the tag you should reach the page below:

enter image description here

click on the help us create it link and at your reputation you should be able to suggest edits to that tag's wiki and excerpt.

The Approve Tag Wiki Edits privilege only becomes available at a reputation of 5,000.

If you are unable to suggest the edit as I describe then please let us know because a 2010 Q&A here, Tag Wiki Editor Qualifications, indicates that it may need 1,500 reputation, but that is not listed on our privileges page.

Further research suggests that it was changed in 2011: Has there been a change in the tag wiki editing privileges policy?

  • The menu was not showing when I first filed the question. But now it is there and I am able to edit. Commented Aug 16, 2016 at 8:39
  • @LuísdeSousa Perhaps there is caching involved.

  • I doubt. This is more likely something related to approval by moderators. Commented Aug 16, 2016 at 10:01
  • @LuísdeSousa I am certain that there was no approval by a moderator involved until after you made your edit (which was when I approved your edit). Looking at the history of the tag wiki it was created by the Community user an hour ago which was probably when I clicked the help us create it link but I am pretty sure that if you clicked that link the same would have happened.

  • As I said initially, the help us create it link was not visible when I filed this question. This might be a bug of some kind. Commented Aug 16, 2016 at 11:46
