I saw that QAvenDreamer added the mods tag to this question.

My question is why? According to my knowledge the mods tag is unnecessary, because Dota already has its own tag.

    This was a while back, our policy on tags has been ... refined ... since then. I think that question needs a retag. – fredley Jun 28 '12 at 10:43
  • @QAdley "... refined ... " ? That's putting it mildly... :D – Stingervz Jun 28 '12 at 11:43

Just because the answer might involve a mod, the question should not use unless it is actually about a mod (which this question is not).

  • Question re tagged. – Stingervz Jun 28 '12 at 11:28
  • Well, the question is about DOTA, which is a mod... – Oak Jun 28 '12 at 11:51

    @Oak But it has its own tag, so [mod] is redundant. – fredley Jun 28 '12 at 11:53

    You used a big word you must be right – badp Jun 28 '12 at 15:12

I tagged that question in February of '11. That's about a year and a half ago.

Site policy changes, and our tagging policy has been particularly turbulent as of late. It may have been a valid tag at the time, but waiting more than a full year is plenty of time to reflect before revisiting the deccision, so I think that, no, the tag is no longer valid on that question.

    I'm quite actively lurking on meta so i saw the "discussion" involving tags ect... So before just re-tagging something which a mod has tagged I first wanted to make sure that I was correct. – Stingervz Jun 29 '12 at 8:13
