# What does the “status-completed” tag mean on “discussion” questions? How does it compare to/contrast with an answer being accepted?

It seems I'd left this tab open on my phone a week ago because it intrigued/confused me.

What does the tag denote in the context of questions tagged ?

I'm thinking that it means no further discussion is required, sufficient consensus has been reached and action has (or has not) been taken in accordance with that consensus. Is that about right?

Should each question's author now consider accepting an answer for an even higher degree of "closure"?

• can't suggest an edit, but use [meta-tag:status-completed] as markdown to link to the meta's tag ;) – ymb1 Mar 14 at 22:39
• @ymb1 thank you very much! I kind of puzzled me how the system would know in which site to find the tag, and so it turns out that it doesn't. – uhoh Mar 14 at 22:51
