Should we standardize our tag formatting regarding Arabic vs. Roman numerals?

Since synonyms for tags exist, I'd rather have the official spelling in the tag, such as final-fantasy-x or fallout-4, but with an alias such as final-fantasy-10 for games that use Roman numerals. A ...

Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes tag

The game's official site is at http://www.keeptalkinggame.com/, so I suggest keep-talking-game. The 'game' part may seem redundant, but it's useful for search engines because there's a Pink Floyd song ...

New Star Wars Battlefront tag problem

I think using sw as the prefix works best. For example, SWTOR is commonly used to refer to the Star Wars: The Old Republic game. Keeping that in mind, we can do the following: I: sw-battlefront-1 ...

Prey-2017 or just Prey?

May I suggest in this case that we have prey (for the new one) and prey-2006 (for the old one)? The old one still doesn't have any questions, so we should reserve the shorter tag for the game that is ...

How do we want to handle tagging for questions related to WoW Classic?

world-of-warcraft-classic would be the appropriate tag, given the circumstances. The base game has diverged significantly since the September 2006 version, and it will be easier to treat it as ...

What is it with massive downvoting of [minecraft-commands]?

My thought about it was that it could be the same old "new users never read how-to-ask" issue. To prove my point I've tried some SQL-fu on Data, here are my results. Last 1000 questions for minecraft-...

How should we tag Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1+2?

I'm leaning towards tony-hawks-pro-skater-1-2 with tony-hawks-pro-skater-2020 as a synonym. The name is awkward but I think that's the best we can do, short of the tag system changing.

How should the Link’s Awakening remake be tagged?

zelda-links-awakening-2019 makes the most sense to me. HD isn't really accurate, since it's a full blown remake, not just a remaster or textures upgrades. A new tag is definitely needed, since there's ...

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

A suitable tag for "Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth"?

boi-afterbirth works fine and fits with established conventions of things like ac-revelations which we have for Assassin's Creed: Revelations, which also exceeds the character limit.
