What do you think of the tag? Does it need to be renamed to something more easily understandable, or can it stand on its own? Does it even need to be its own tag?

It's apparently for questions about Minecraft's Survival Multiplayer mode. If you had to read this to understand what the tag is about, you'll probably agree it needs a synonym.

    For some reason, even though I kept on seeing this tag around, I thought it had something to do with servers so I let it stick around. Whoops.

I think it should be renamed to . It isn't obvious to anyone who isn't a Minecraft player what that is, and it's not a game acronym.

  • I second this, it makes a lot more sense.

  • Yeah, either this or [minecraft-survival] or... something :) That's why I'm asking.

  • smp still doesn't make sense to me. (I suppose that's because my brain tries to turn the acronym into (Single Player Mode) Commented May 9, 2011 at 22:34

    Why not [minecraft-multiplayer]? That way there's no confusion for people who don't actually know what SMP stands for (or people like @Raven who easily forget :) Commented May 10, 2011 at 15:46

I think that is fine as it is. The tag isn't obvious to anyone who isn't a Minecraft player, but it will only ever be used in conjunction with the tag anyway.
