Saw on a post someone using : and . Not sure to merge the first one with the last two, but and could be synonyms. I'm not sure we needed the server tag to be distinct from dedicated server, because as far as game and servers are concerned, we will always run on dedicated server.

  • @badp can you retrieve the tag-wiki suggestion I made for install by any luck (not sure it is still active after synonym)? It should fit game-installation (or installation regardless)

Yes, should be a synonym of . But should not, in most cases they are the same and just should be used but there are some question where it is requred. Any questions that involve the actual server software itself or is specific to a third machine doing the hosting will need this tag.
