The tag is stupid.

It adds no value to the questions it is on. It is a meta tag, describing the question moreso than the information in the question, which is frowned upon. Questions that are about trivia are generally not about gaming and are thus of questionable nature on this site anyway. Trivia is at best something that should be included as a fun addendum to an answer about something else, and not something that should be the primary focus of a question on this site.

I'm going to slowly kill it off unless I hear any objections by around noon tomorrow.

Sound good?

    Has the trivia tag murdered your firstborn child? Why such animosity? O_o Mar 22, 2012 at 20:20

    @RavenDreamer It doesn't add any useful information as a tag. Most things that are about trivia don't belong on the site. Mar 22, 2012 at 20:20
  • You're right that it is a meta tag. Mar 22, 2012 at 20:21

    Well, I'm glad that at least my question did something good.

  • We need to blacklist it. Otherwise it's just going to keep coming back.

  • @TheAnnoyingPyro ehhh...what if a game is legitimately called Trivia? Blacklist just breaks stuff. That was probably a good-faith mistake
