I recently created and it seams that I went wrong, the tag should be like or .

Renaming/making synonym the tag could also be a good occasion to make synonym before someone use it.

I deleted the tag from your question, rather than retagging. Platform tags are only for questions specifically about the platform. Do not add them to questions that are about games that happen to be on that platform.


There should be no need to make a tag synonym. The tag has only one question (yours), and there are no questions tagged . Remove the tag from your question and add . The tag will automatically be deleted since there will be no questions tagged with it.

I now see that this is not possible due to a feature that prevents users from accidentally creating new tags from typos. Moderator intervention may be required. I would mod flag on your question explaining the situation.

  • Tried it, but gameboy-color have not been deleted, even if I saved edit. Could not add game-boy-color because gameboy-color already exist, even if there is no question tagged with it.

  • I tried too. Got the following error: You are attempting to create the tag [game-boy-color]; however the tag [gameboy-color] already exists! If you think this new tag should be allowed, raise it on meta

  • Interesting, must be a feature exclusive to Gaming.SE. This must require mod intervention. I'd mod flag on your question @Jouramie.

  • @JAL It's not an exclusive feature, and it has been around for a while now. It's to prevent people accidentally creating new tags from typos Aug 19, 2016 at 14:50
