Since the game titles are lengthy, shortening or abbreviations are necessary. The "mainline" Harry Potter games:

  • Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone
  • Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets
  • Harry Potter: Quidditch World Cup
  • Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
  • Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
  • Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
  • Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
  • Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1
  • Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2

Even as a person familiar with the franchise, abbreviations "HPB", "POA" and "QWC" aren't instantly recognizable to me. Adding tag info may be necessary for clarity.


Without any current questions it's hard to judge what people would want to use, but here's my take:

Fully written out, most of those games won't fit under our 35 character limit as-is. But if we drop the least important part of the names, (the "and-the-") all tags fit under 35 characters:

We could potentially look at creating shorthand, 'HP'-style synonyms, but let's cross that bridge when we actually have some questions for them.

  • I forgot that the tag length was increased, I ran my tests with 25. – user598527 Oct 5 '17 at 15:02
