Characters like 'ç' and 'ã' are removed from tags. Is this intentional? It doesn't really add much value, but it's weird to see them without the diacritics.

Stack Exchange’s tag system can be tweaked per-site.

By default, on most sites, it allows only

  • the basic Latin alphabet with no diacritics,
  • numbers,
  • hyphens.

However, on French Language, Spanish Language, and Stack Overflow em Português, diacritics are allowed. And on Russian Language and Stack Overflow на русском tags can use the Cyrillic alphabet.

I imagine that tags with diacritics will be enabled here soon.

  • It is really strange to see Portuguese tags without diacritics. They miss a lot and sometimes, makes, e.g., written Portuguese language weirder than it is now, with such ridiculous, at least for me, spelling reform. Dec 12, 2016 at 8:33

  • @tucasilvapontes11584. This was tagged "status completed" on the 14th of July, last year. So tags with diacritics are now allowed. If you still see tags without diacritics, you may want to edit them (or post a new question on Meta to point it out).
