Following up on my post from yesterday:
Here is a sampling of "off-topic" tags from the top 20% or so (a totally unscientific 20%, to be sure - I just stopped after I got a whole bunch) of all tags on the site.
Why are these tags under consideration? Why is the answer burnination rather than X or Y?
The template for suggesting these tags for permanent burnination is the game-rec tag. It's been discussed a couple of times, so I don't want to rehash it here; please review:
sales - Many off-topic questions about sales figures for games. Also a few "shopping advice and recommendations" questions.
game-rec - See the linked meta posts above. If there's value in keeping some of the questions around, the suggestion is re-tagging them.
legal - Many closed questions under this tag, (mostly regarding "does X count as piracy?") and quite a few that would stand alone without it - Gaming.SE is a gaming site, and not a legal site. We are not lawyers, and should not attempt to provide legal advice.
release-date - Speculation of the future of the industry and of upcoming releases + Too Localized - either we're giving information about a game that hasn't been released yet (and release dates are often subject to change) or the data is irrelevant once the game's been released.
theory - Ambiguous tag (I've marked it before) - what is a "theory" question? In one definition, it asks us to speculate, so I dumped it here.
game-development - Off topic, likely to be migrated.
