Just added this question:
What setting up do I need to do for "Find My Phone" to work?

And tried to tag it with a couple of new tags and .

Only the former was allowed. The latter caused this to show: enter image description here

Regardless of whether this is a good tag to have (and I would argue it could be useful to collect together questions dealing with services at windowsphone.com), how come it's not allowed?


Per this answer on Should we bother to tag questions with [windows-phone] or [windows-phone-7]? as been blacklisted. I presume it extends to variants of that spelling.

We've blacklisted any tags beginning with "windows-phone" - that should apply to pretty much every question and most tags on the site, so it's unnecessary. - Shog9

  • can a whitelist of exceptions (like [windowsphone.com]) be nested inside the blacklist?

  • @hawbsl We probably could modify the blacklist rule, but how useful is [windowsphone.com] as a tag, anyway? We'd need to see a list of questions that'd benefit from it. There's not much point of trying to make exceptions for just one.
