Hmm, that sounds like a bug. I just tried it and it worked for me. What browser are you using?

Thanks Lianne, I am using (an outdated version of) Safari so I'm not really surprised if that's the problem I expected that if I could add a name, surely I could also delete it (silly me!). Could someone delete the "BLAIR" name from my tags please?
As far as I know, even a sysop can't edit someone else's tags. Do you have any other browser you could use to do this?
Tried "Explorer" (also outdated) and that doesn't work either. Surely there is someone at Wikitree that can remove the Blair tag. Chris Whitten perhaps?
Hi Peter,

Is it possible you have Javascript turned off in your browser? You'd probably be noticing this elsewhere if you did.

We don't currently have the ability as sysops to edit others' tags, but we'll add this. We can take care of this for you when that's finished, or if it becomes an emergency we can go into the database manually.

Chris
Hi Chris,

Javascript is enabled. Because I don't have updated versions of browsers, I do have problems accessing sites from time to time.
Since adding Blair to my tags, my Navigation home page is now full of Blair activity.
Peter, I removed "blair" from your following list.

Lianne, sysops like us now have the ability to directly edit members' tags. I'll link the URL from somewhere.
Many thanks for doing that Chris, I feel like I'm back to "normal" again.
