I support this proposal. It would also prevent confusion with the (pseudo-)sequals AaaaaAAaaaAAAaaAAAAaAAAAA!!! for the Awesome and AaaaaAAaaaAAAaaAAAAaAAAAA!!! (Force = Mass x Acceleration)

Personally, I don't think it's a good idea to outright change the tag to metal-gear-online-3 from what has come to be known as the more common title: mgs-5-online. However, I would definitely see benefit to adding a synonym tag. That way, we get the benefits of the more common name, combined with the official name of the game.

The simcity tag should be a synonym for simcity-2013. That way, if they come out with a new title that they also want to call SimCity, we could just change the synonym. sonic-the-hedgehog-2006 and tomb-raider-2013 are other examples of games where the tag name differs from the official name. Not to mention simcity-classic, which was named SimCity when ...

How Minecraft versions are organized There are three main Minecraft codebases. To simplify, I'm gonna call them Java, Bedrock and Console. Following are the versions of Java codebase: Classic, Indev, Infdev, Alpha, Beta: pre-release development versions of the PC game Minecraft (please note that, while this term is officially to be considered outdated, ...

With the tag renaming craze that came with longer tags I love to see the names that were shortened to be extended. But for a game name to include it's subtitle when it's already a numbered entry, I feel like its going overboard?


8

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 search "littl" in the tags, the tags from the LittleBigPlanet series show up at the top. From there it should be easy to find the correct tag to use. If you want ...

It's four questions. You have more than 2k rep. Just edit them. Not every situation like this needs a big meta discussion. If you See Something, Do Something.

Yup, seems sensible. Remapped, and synonym added.

These are all now done. ac-brotherhood -> assassins-creed-brotherhood ac-revelations -> assassins-creed-revelations ac-syndicate -> assassins-creed-syndicate ac3-liberation -> assassins-creed-3-liberation ac4-kenways-fleet -> assassins-creed-4-kenways-fleet assassins-creed-fc -> assassins-creed-freedom-cry assassins-creed-pl -> assassins-creed-project-...

Sure can! I've done that for you. :)

Since tags are meant reflect actual usage, and the title of the game is Dragon Quest VII (less the subtitle) in fact and not just styling, yes, the tag should be dragon-quest-vii, with a synonym from dragon-quest-7 pointing to it for convenience. (It's probably “7” now just because whoever used the tag first wrote it that way. That doesn't establish any ...

Agreed. I've created donkey-kong-country-tropical-freeze and mapped dkc-tropical-freeze to it. I've created donkey-kong-country-returns and deleted dk-country-returns. I deleted the original tag since DK Country is never how anyone ever refers to that series. It's either Donkey Kong Country or DKC.

This answer's primary focus is on full game name throughout the tag names. This answer is for renaming all of the tags to be of the form: civilization-x-expansion-name. This would result in: civilization-5 and civilization-5-brave-new-world, civilization-6 and civilization-6-rise-and-fall, In cases where the full game name does not fit, each would be ...

I merged final-fantasy-type0hd with your suggestion, so it should be good to go now. :)

Looks like a mod has already changed it from pulsarlostcolony to pulsar-lost-colony.

Done. vampire-bloodlines -> vampire-the-masquerade-bloodlines vampire-redemption -> vampire-the-masquerade-redemption

The Dragon Ball tags have now been renamed by Robotnik. Original Answer: Agreed, the Dragon Ball tags should be cleaned up for consistency. Tags which should be renamed dragonball-xenoverse -> dragon-ball-xenoverse dragonball-xenoverse-2 -> dragon-ball-xenoverse-2 dragonball-z-legacy -> dragon-ball-z-the-legacy-of-goku dbz-dokkan-battle -> dragon-ball-z-...

With the recent tag length increase* I've actioned this and changed the tag to need-for-speed-2-special-edition. The tag excerpt came along with the rename/merge. * Please report any display issues or page errors with 26+ character long tags as a bug on Meta.

I've gone and made that change for you - so now all of the questions are now tagged with sky-force-2014, and the old tag has been merged into this new one as a synonym.

This is the state of these renames so far: Game Tags All base game tags and the series tag have been renamed: the-elder-scrolls → the-elder-scrolls-series daggerfall → the-elder-scrolls-2-daggerfall morrowind → the-elder-scrolls-3-morrowind oblivion → the-elder-scrolls-4-oblivion skyrim → the-elder-scrolls-5-skyrim Mod Tags While Enderal does appear to be ...

The tag should be expanded to be consistent with other tags on the site Looking at tags for numbered games, we already are in the habit of using the full name of the game including the subtitle. For instance: wolfenstein-2-the-new-colossus zelda-2-the-adventure-of-link yo-kai-watch-2-fleshy-souls persona-4-arena-ultimax worms-2-armageddon ratchet-and-clank-...

This answer is more to clarify some points that I made in comments regarding SEO and to provide image evidence of what I'm talking about with regards to Page (or 'Nav') Title vs Question Title, what Google uses, what changing a tag will do, and so forth. For the purposes of example, I'll use this question: So I was out drinking last night...how do I remove a ...


4

Seems reasonable, I've renamed these.


3

This is done, however This change affected 3 questions total. There were no tag wikis or excerpts that would be saved by a tag merge Keeping the old tags as synonyms in this case would be benign at best (and I have removed them). For smaller tags like this we probably don't need a whole meta about it. You have the reputation to create tags and to edit ...

This is now done: sw-battlefront-2015 -> star-wars-battlefront-2015

The simcity tag has been renamed to simcity-2013. Ironically, it seems that simcity-2013 was already a synonym for simcity. It's just never been used before. Thanks to badp for renaming the tag.
