Rename [aaaaaa] → [a-reckless-disregard-for-gravity]

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

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 we rename the [mgs-5-online] tag to [metal-gear-online-3]?

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 ...

Rename [simcity] tag to [simcity-5] or [simcity-2013]

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 ...

Rename [the-witcher-2] → [the-witcher-2-assassins-of-kings] and [the-witcher-3] → [the-witcher-3-wild-hunt]

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 ...

Retag [dragon-quest-7] -> [dragon-quest-vii]

That makes sense and is consistent with our tagging policy of having the game name as part of the tag whenever possible. Another advantage is for searchability purposes: as per the Meta SE post, “...

Rename [simcity] tag to [simcity-5] or [simcity-2013]

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.
