Should there be a and/or tag?

There are a few questions I have found that could use one or both of these tags, and with multiple games in the series now, (for some reason) people can confuse the tag as a tag for the series, rather than the first installment.

Normally I would go straight ahead with this, but the issue is that if the community is (albeit rarely) already confusing the tags, adding more would just exacerbate the issue.

Some examples of this might be:

    [Dark-souls-series] would match our current naming convention

  • Can a tag be renamed? I.e. could the [dark-souls] tag be changed to [dark-souls-1]?

    Not easily by regular users (requiring literally editing every question to remove/add the tag), but I believe mods can do it in one fell swoop. Having said that, I believe the precedent is to not append '1's to the title. See the edit history and convo between shanodin and I here regarding Ratchet 1. sonic-the-hedgehog is another tag where this isn't the case.

  • So in the case of the Sonic tag, the explanation of using the "series" tag for general use was added. So I guess it's just down to whether or not it's necessary.

  • yep. Pretty sure I wrote that excerpt as well (in the interest of full disclosure) :-)

  • Can you provide a few examples of questions which you think would benefit from the tag?

The tag now exists, with 4 questions using it. If you come across any other questions that should use the series tag, please edit them.*

I have added a tag excerpt stub describing how the tag should be used. Feel free to improve upon it if needed.

* Try not to flood the front page with tag edits. Edit when you see a problem, don't go looking for one.
