Yesterday, Steve V marked a series of questions with . A good tag, but there was a short discussion in chat as to whether it should be renamed to something like , which is a more common monicker for gameplay after the "resolution of the main plot".

But post-game specifically refers to gameplay, not story. You don't call the ending or the spin-off books "post-game". That is one scenario where a classification of "after the plot" would be valid but not "post-game".

All 6 questions with the tag, as far as I can tell, are about post-game activity and not story. And I think there have been questions about endings and such, which do not have this tag. I'm thus not sure that we necessarily need a separate tag to differentiate story/plot questions that occur after the main story versus during the normal course.

I'm thinking of doing a rename and then establishing a synonym of , under the assumption that we don't expect any questions about story to need a post-resolution tag.

In chat, Powerlord mentioned the idea of . For the most part, epilogue tends to much more often relate to just the plot elements, and so it may be a good option if we do need a separate tag for post-resolution story that won't be frequently confused with post-game.

This session of the Dark Assembly is now in order. Aye or nay?

  • So, where does this leave us in terms of an enforceable decision? Using post-game? – Shaun Mar 2 '11 at 23:13
  • @Shaun That seems to be the conclusion, but there's no haste here for this one. I figure giving a full week is fine. – Grace Note Mar 2 '11 at 23:39

Aye. (I'm in full agreement and have nothing to add)

It seems that this is a moot discussion at this point, since none of the tags mentioned exist any more. And good riddance; they were bad tags anyway.

Why not "end-game", it's the terminology usually associated with exactly what you're talking about?

  • end-game could be confused with the game's ending. I still think this is the best answer though. – Batophobia Dec 11 '13 at 22:09

Nay. Keep as is, it's fine.

  • Also, I don't actually agree with this, but the opinion had to be posted to properly poll votes. – Mana Feb 24 '11 at 14:59
  • Who said this was a poll? This is not a popularity contest, if you have a valid reason against the synonym please do share it. – badp Feb 24 '11 at 15:01
  • Well, "I'm in full agreement and have nothing to add". – Mana Feb 24 '11 at 15:08
  • Considering that people are downvoting both of these answers, I don't think this is having the exact intended effect. :( – Shaun Feb 24 '11 at 21:18

Frankly, I don't like either option. I'd prefer . It's immediately obvious as the same phrase is used to refer to easter eggs after movies and it can cover anything from plot to things you can do in-game after you beat the end guy.
