Shouldn't [hogwarts-legacy] be renamed to [harry-potter-hogwarts-legacy] and/or a synonym be created?

We title our tags based on the game's official name. The official name of the game is "Hogwarts Legacy", without the Harry Potter specification, so we don't mention Harry Potter in the title ...

Can I find out why a user got deleted?

Make searching easier by renaming [little-big-planet] → [littlebigplanet]

I don't see a need for this. As Kaizerwolf stated, other games have words from their titles broken up. Pretty much all of our tags have titles broken up whether they have spaces in them or not. If I ...

Could we get the Documentation feature for Arqade?

Unfortunately, No. Documentation was discontinued back in 2017 and the service shut down, thus any chance of porting it over here died with it.

Should we make an [io-game] or [internet-broswer-game] tag?

No. We answer questions that are specific to each game. There's no need for internet-browser-game because it doesn't offer anything of value. If it's a new game, use the closest tag possible. ...

Create a chat room for the posts that don't fit the Q & A guidelines

No. We don't create sites for the things SE doesn't take. That's essentially a dump site, and doomed to fail. Nobody will stick around there, and it just leads to a completely dead site.
