Changing tags from [the-fairly-oddparents] to [the-fairly-odd-parents]

It sort of is, and sort of isn't. Officially, the show's name is The Fairly OddParents, with the two words squished together into a single compound word. This makes more sense than it appears to - it'...

Can/should tv.stackexchange.com redirect to this site?

Why are tags only visible at the main page when we are signed-out?

Because when you are signed in, the application already knows what tags you are interested in, or assumes you are somewhat familiar with the site. When you are signed out, it has no idea who you are, ...
