Last year, RuneScape released a version of the game that reverted to the 2007 state of the game, wiping all accounts. This is in response to the "Evolution of Combat" update that completely changed how combat works. This clearly has an impact on how questions should be asked, since while much of the content is similar, the OSRS version lacks many updates.
I created a oldschool-runescape tag to differentiate the two. But I'm wondering how they should be tagged going forward.
Option 1: Just the oldschool-runescape tag should be applied
Pros: updates to old content would not cloud the relevant answers. Cons: content that wasn't updated would be applicable to both, but users that only follow the vanilla runescape tag won't see it.
Option 2: Nixx the oldschool-runescape tag
The exact opposite of option 1, it increases total exposure to questions, but introduces contamination.
Option 3: Both should be applied to all questions
This option makes it clear that it applies to RS07, so users know to not apply updates to their answers, but still increases exposure. This is my recommendation.
Option 4: Both should be applied depending on the content of the question.
This would get tricky, as either way you risk both contamination or exclusion.
I can't think of anything like this applying to other games. How should we proceed with these kinds of questions?
