Once again publishers are conspiring against us with titles that don't make easy tags

In this particular case, we're limited by what characters are allowed to be in tags. doesn't work, neither does [tag:tony-hawks-pro-skater-1&2], and is already a remake from 2012.

How should we tag this slightly odd title while making sure that we can be clear about which game we are talking about?

  • Interestingly, 1+2 does work in a posted meta question, but didn't work in the preview (and doesn't work in the tag box for a question I already tried)

  • but if you click through, it appears to be 2 tags

  • @MBraedley Which is consistent with what it does in the tag box so I guess that makes sense

    it's weird that the tag box won't accept '1+2', but tags ending in + are fine

  • @Robotnik I guess that makes sense given that, for example, [c++] very much needed to be allowed over on SO

I'm leaning towards with as a synonym.

The name is awkward but I think that's the best we can do, short of the tag system changing.


How about something basic? When in doubt, just add the relevant year

    Personally I think that both -1-2 and -2020 aren't too necessary together, one or the other would probably be fine

  • 1-2-2020 looks like a date (first of february or second january? :))
