I was improving a question that asks about specific types of player groups in "No Man's Sky". It occurred to me that this sort of question might be considered gaming-history.
Checking the tag description, it says this, emphasis mine.
Questions about the history of games, conventions, customs, traditions and gaming terms, and how they have developed over time.
I personally consider physical gaming groups to fall under "customs" and "traditions", but that's just me. I am unsure if this is something that would be echoed across the site.
Does talking about specific game groups constitute gaming-history?
Since it was suggested that I was deliberately stretching a tag to fit my own agenda, and in the interests of transparency, I want to confirm that it is in my interests to promote the gaming-history tag; I personally both like the tag and view it as one of great potential, within our community. It is also a tag that often attracts bad or outright off-topic questions, so I would like to see more "acceptable" questions using this tag.
Regardless, I still view the topic of gaming groups a part of gaming history; especially if asked if a type of one has ever existed.
