  • This would be a good candidate for the new tag synonyms system that just rolled out on the trilogy.

    Possible duplicate of Expand The Elder Scrolls game tags to include [the-elder-scrolls] prefix (a more recent community consensus on the same topic) Nov 20, 2020 at 9:58
  • @galacticninja I was asking about prefixing the "the" back then, not TES to each and every gametag

  • @Zommuter IMO, the more recent community consensus covers how to name all Elder Scrolls series-related tags (which includes prefixing "the"). Nov 22, 2020 at 9:17
  • @galacticninja Sure, but that's still a different thing. But no worries, I don't care either way since this one has long since been taken care of

Isn't the series normally referred to as "The Elder Scrolls"? Fan sites seem to anyway.

    exactly, and my first guess for a tag was typing "the-elder..." so that elder-scrolls wouldn't be suggested. That may happen to others

Seeing as elder-scrolls has considerably more questions, I say we keep it on that. the-elder-scrolls seems overly descriptive, tags should be concise. It would be difficult to keep the articles on for very big names.
