However, the OP explains that it cannot apply the answer codes: and for good reason, because the other question does not solve its problem at all.
A closer look at the question shows that this new collaborator did not see the essential difference between the two questions: he uses the operation
\node to draw the regular polygon while in the other question he uses a

- Shouldn't we change the closing rules and leave a few days of latency before we can close a question?
Can you reopen these questions?
I ask for this question (Labeling points on a circle [duplicate] ) to be reopened because it makes it possible to clarify Tikz's various concepts and operations.
