So I've created a new question and was a little unsure about the tag that should be used.

I settled with inquisitor-martyr as that seemed the most logical tag to use. However the Dawn of War 2 tag does not include the Warhammer 40k moniker, but the Dawn of War tag does.

When a game is part of a franchise like this, should the franchise be included in the tag? Should these tags all be brought into a consistent naming convention?

Whenever possible, use the full, official name of the game

The full name of the game as presented on their website is Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor - Martyr. Therefore, we would ideally tag the game as .

However, you've noticed that this hasn't been consistently followed, largely because of the limit on the number of characters on a tag name. The limit used to be 25 characters, which caused problems for games like Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War - Soulstorm. The character limit is now 35 characters, and these games should have been retagged.

That said, is 37 characters, which is over our limit. Given that there is the common abbreviation of 40k, that is the obvious choice. For consistency of games of the franchise, I think that all of these games should be prefixed with warhammer-40k.

This would mean that the name for this game would be , with variants as tag synonyms.
