There are a number of games in the Civilization franchise that can be expanded thanks to the 35 character tag limit.

There is however Civilization: Beyond Earth — Rising Tide and is two characters too long. I think that the best we can do is expand , or alternatively .

For reference, Issue with the Civilization V Gods and Kings tags was a former question from when there was a 25 character tag limit, which isn't relevant now.

  • This is another one of those cases where I'm a bit torn between trying to fit the whole name, and having the names being consistent. I think, in this case, because the base game tags spell out 'Civilization' that we could go for consistency and do "Civ-X-expansion-name". – Bob2Chiv Feb 13 at 13:50
  • @Bob2Chiv What is your rationale for shortening the expansion names? Aside from Civilization: Beyond Earth - Rising Tide, they all fit within 35 characters. I'm not seeing how shortening the expansion names to [civ-X-expansion-name] is more consistent. Wouldn't the logger versions be more consistent, since it would match the base games? – Thunderforge Feb 13 at 20:23

    I meant consistent with each other. If we do civ-X-expansion-name then civ-be-rising-tide would not need to change, but others would. "Civ X" is a pretty standard abbreviation from what I've heard [once again having never played the game(s)]. EDIT: Oh, I see you are saying consistency with the base games names – Bob2Chiv Feb 13 at 21:27
  • @Bob2Chiv Yes, I'm describing consistency with the base games. Also, we already have [civilization-6-rise-and-fall], so not all expansions are the shorter versions. Also, Google seems to treat civ and civilization as synonyms, so we don't need to worry about SEO. – Thunderforge Feb 13 at 21:36

These are now done:

I chose the short 'civ' tag for Rising tide as it has the most important words spelled out explicitly, whereas 'Civ' is already considered synonymous with 'Civilization'

This answer's primary focus is on full game name throughout the tag names.

This answer is for renaming all of the tags to be of the form:

.

This would result in:

and ,

and ,

In cases where the full game name does not fit, each would be handled on a case by case basis.

I figured I might as well put this option as an answer so people can down or up vote appropriately.

    At present, the only one that doesn't fit is [civilization-beyond-earth-rising-tide] (37 characters). – Thunderforge Feb 13 at 22:51
