Post in forum #265727 - [Announcement] Tag categories for existing tags can no longer be changed via metatag

I was able to create the new tag after all, but I had to do so by creating it as an un-metatagged general tag and then manually changing it from the tags page. So novel tags /are/ still possible- but is this how the implementation is intended to behave?

Yes. This, imho, was most likely implemented to prevent casual users from changing tag catagories out of the blue. This would often create big messes, especially with vague tags often in the artist and/or character categories
