It's clear that many new users don't know how to use tags. They try to tag writing pokemon (space) go and we get a lot of questions tagged and .

Due to this question we have a tag (which techically is a boardgame, not a videogame), so can we just edit its name in order to avoid that annoying habit?

At least somebody added DO NOT USE FOR POKEMON GO in excerpt, but I don't see many benefits.

    I don't think this is particularly a bad idea. Is a tag really needed when only 1 question uses it? Tags are meant to help find similar questions, help with filtering, etc. Removing go sounds like it would save many edits to new questions. But, I'm a noob here and I don't know the general tagging culture here.

  • @TimMalone - We tag with the specific game wherever possible, even if there's only one question about it. We have very few non-game/console specific tags, like [terminology], [achievements] etc

The tag has been replaced with , and has been synonymised with (for the time being at least, to ease moderation effort).

is a more suitable tag for that one question, as it is about functionality to do with the KGS Go platform not the board game 'Go', meaning it's still on-topic for us.


We should remove the tag completely.

There is currently only one question using the tag, and it is about a feature of the specific application used for it. It's also 5 years old. This should be tagged to refer to KGS.

Any questions about Go strategy are off-topic here and belong in Board & Card Games.

    I agree, [kgs] tag should be more suitable.
