I think it is possible for someone to be an expert on the steam cloud service (since it is a concrete service) without wanting to wade through problems with steam games (since that is often how the tag is used).
I disagree with this. Street fighter 4 and Super Street fighter 4 (and AE) are different. yes the game engine is the same, but the balancing has drastically changed the matchups and tiering of various characters.
For example, Fei Long in SF4 was considered a middle tier character. He got a bump in SSF4 that made him near top tier. He's considered among ...
The 2ds and 3ds tags can probably be merged.....BUUUT before we do, should we have a look at the way we're tagging the entire 3DS line of consoles? We do currently seem to have tags for most of the major console revisions:
According to the Nintendo 3DS Product Family, the 2DS, 3DS and 3DS XL are substantially similar ...
There are noted differences between the two games. The best example I can come up with (thanks to the recent changes to the okami questions) is this question, which asks about a mini game that is not present in the PS3 remake.
A question asking about the absence of that minigame would not apply to the original release of the game, only the remaster. Thus, ...
The large majority of "Wings of Liberty" questions would, by necessity, have to refer to either Wings of Liberty-exclusive maps, or achievements, which means that they could be appropriately identified by the map / achievement name alone, making the tag redundant.
I don't see a possible scenario where someone asks about the campaign and ...
Bad idea, both releases have different files, and were built differently. AOE2 requires a different Direct X then the HD built version, so if Joan Of Arc comes in and asks why doesnt my pc render AOE2 properly, then the tag AOE2 HD would not fit at all.
Remember one was built for the 98 era the other for the Win 8.1 era. This alone requires 2 tags. Not to ...
I don't think this is a good idea. Even if most of the questions for Spigot also apply to Bukkit as you claim, they're still separate programs that work different in some respects, so knowing how to do something in one of them might not apply to the other. This would be similar to merging C and C++ on Stack Overflow, or merging Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 on ...
After learning more about the different versions, I no longer agree with this listing. A new discussion is here: Pocket Edition is now Bedrock. Why PE is not a synonym? When should the PE tag be used?
(Posting as answer, because it's long, has formatting and at least offers a partial solution.)
I would say we should allow as much specification ...
The vast majority of questions I've seen/answered on these tags apply to both games. We don't have separate tags for each version of StarCraft or LoL that comes out, even though the gameplay balance can shift dramatically between them, and so having different tags for various SF4 patches, a game which has a notably smaller player base, is overkill.
I don't know much about DirectX-Y, but it seems weird to me to combine different versions of it into one tag. A game with huge similarities between version 1 and 2 is also not combined into one tag, why would this be true for software?
Here's my counterproposal:
Create the street-fighter-4-series tag. Manually apply it to questions that do not apply to any SF4 game in particular.
Leave the rest of the questions tagged with their game name.
I think it could be allowed to stay. It's a little general, but build orders are a big part of SC2 strategy, and I can see people using this tag, searching for it, favoriting it, etc.
On the down side, it is a little generic, and I don't think tags like sc2-strategy, sc2-micro, or in general gamename-tactictype are a good idea. I especially don't think we ...
