The tag is a past-tense verb. That doesn't make sense for a tag. I think it should be instead.

    If we're going to do this, I'd favor 'lock' over 'locking. There's no reason to use a gerund. Commented Mar 12, 2014 at 4:49

    Whilst I agree with @Less as to the wording, I'm wondering if its even a tag we need to have. Is it useful as a filter? Do experts have knowledge about regions and their lockiness? I feel we'd be better served removing it entirely. As for the few questions only tagged [region-locked], most are closed (or should be), and the rest could be retagged with the game/service in question.

  • Data Explorer to the rescue! As of this writing and the last data dump, there are 4 questions that are singularly tagged, and only ones is closed. The other 3 are all from 2010, and while they probably still hold value, they would probably be considered off topic today.

  • If you really want to get technical, this is not in past tense; this is the past participle of the verb 'to region-lock'. Commented Mar 19, 2014 at 2:17

At some point, was created with as a synonym. I think that this is a better outcome.

We could still add as a synonym if desired.
