Although SE in general considers tags to be equal, we have atleast 2 tags that I know of - story and achievements - that are only valid when paired with another tag for a particular game or series.

However, the code for suggesting related links doesn't take this into account. So for e.g., if I am viewing a question on Diablo 3 lore (tagged diablo-3 and story) then it may suggest story questions from other game universes like ME & Skyrim.

This is kind of a unique feature request based on gaming.SE's domain, but I think it'd work better if

  • 'Related' links gave more importance to having other tags in common (this doesn't need to be gaming.SE specific)
  • Should not allow users to tag a question with only story or achievements (no idea if there are such posts or how to search for them)
  • 1
    Hmm, I'm also not aware of a way to easily search for posts with a single tag. And I agree that questions are more likely to be related the more tags they share (assuming tagging is working as intended, cough) here and elsewhere. – Matthew Read Jun 1 '12 at 18:51

    So a question tagged c and strings has questions tagged both c and strings show up in its related question list instead of strings and java? Sounds like a good idea! – Raven Dreamer Jun 1 '12 at 18:57
  • @RavenDreamer: Yes, and thanks for clarifying the question to make it more generic. My 2nd point is a bit different though, just want to point out to readers - it is not related to point 1 – Alok Jun 1 '12 at 22:51
