Ok, the title might seem a little stupid because I have no idea what this kind of thing is called. For example, when I click on , I see in the related tags section:

, , , , , the list goes on and on and on.

Aren't these technically all related to Team Fortress 2? Unlike Minecraft, which has different versions of gameplay (e.g. Minecraft-smp, minecraft-Bukkit), these tags are all about TF2. I guess you could says at picking a different character is kind of like another version of gameplay, but to me, its really all the same.

So what's the scope on this?


These kind of tags (I call them "subtags") were proposed/endorsed by Jeff as a solution to situations where having just the game tag isn't enough to meaningfully subdivide questions. The intent is to use them for games that are likely to/starting to approach hundreds or even thousands of questions.

I went into some detail about my opinions on the subject here, if you were wanting more of an opinion and less of a statement of facts. :)
