My understanding was that when a tag B is made a synonym of tag A and merged with it, then if B had any tag wiki excerpt it would not be visible anywhere anymore.
The excerpt for
[mixed-anova] is visible, despite it being merged (see https://stats.stackexchange.com/tags/synonyms to verify that it is merged i.e. has 0 threads in it ). Moreover, even though it is visible, there is no
edit link on mouseover, making it impossible to edit or delete it. It is a ghost excerpt!
(For comparison, the screenshot shows the
edit link for
[meta-analysis-mixed-effects] which is a synonym but is not merged; I was mouseover-ing it when I did the screenshot. Cf. Can I find excerpt/Wiki of a tag that is now a synonym of another tag?).
- Is it indeed a bug that the wiki excerpt is visible?
- If not, then is it a bug that the
editlink is absent?
- If not, then how can one edit or delete that wiki excerpt?
I am guessing that if one knew the tag id, one could manually try to access the edit page like this one: https://stats.stackexchange.com/edit-tag-wiki/3799. But how to find out the tag id?
