Certain actions bring a Q&A back to the top of the top page of TopAnswers, in particular:

- adding an answer;
- editing the question or any answer.

But it seems as if **tag edits**, either adding or deleting tags, does *not* bump the Q&A in the site's sort order.

Is this correct?

I actually hope it is, as the re-tagging changes nothing in terms of Q&A content, only refines the "meta" information about it. (I always thought tag-edits on SE that bumped Q&As were a bit of a pain, frankly.)

I can't find the conversation behind it now, but on our todo list is a job to make tag edits bump questions but only on meta.ta, so as things stand…

…yes that's correct.

That's usually the case but on meta with tags like `in-progress` and `completed`, perhaps it still makes sense to have tag edits bump questions here? Or perhaps that's moot because most significant status changes also involve an answer (or answer edit) anyway, what do you think?
Does a "tag-only-edit" bump questions?

we'll almost certainly leave this be for the time being then — we can always revisit later if necessary

I remember that too :)

@Jack Hmm... the changing a tag here in Meta from `in-progress` to `completed` will normally (I would have thought) also been occasion for an update to the main body of the post, too. That would, as you say, bring the "bump" with it in any case. I think, on reflection, *this* user would prefer tag-only-edits **not** to bump Q&As to the top. I recall [a lot of site noise](https://chat.stackexchange.com/transcript/1505?m=16198501#16198501) when a major re-tagging exercise was undertaken at BH.SE... :/
