Apr 17 '14 at 20:24 comment added SevenSidedDie @KRyan That's not the litmus test, just an example of applying the test. The actual litmus test is the preceding line, "whether or not you can envision a question with the tag as its only tag." So it's that it's meaningless by itself; which isn't something every tag suffers from.
Apr 17 '14 at 19:21 comment added KRyan I think "without a system tag, the tag is meaningless" criticism is a bit... ridiculous? on this site. That's true of almost every question on this site, and I'm sure this is not the only tag with that situation. It might still be too much of a meta tag than is acceptable, but that is not a good litmus test.
Apr 17 '14 at 18:55 comment added AceCalhoon 100% agree. If we're having problems with ignorant "rule 0 says do whatever you like, lol" answers we should be addressing that directly. Not trying to use a tag as a ward against evil.
Apr 17 '14 at 18:53 comment added DuckTapeAl As an addendum to Point 2: There is currently only one question that only has the rules-as-written tag, and it's on hold for being too broad.
Apr 17 '14 at 18:48 comment added Cristol.GdM Well, on the other hands users can then search through system tags, while nobody is specifically searching for rules-as-written questions. Damn, I think I just convinced myself, the rules-as-written tag has no point.
Apr 17 '14 at 18:47 comment added Cristol.GdM @DuckTapeal But that's the whole point of tags. Else, why are we even tagging systems, when it could just be mentioned in the question?

Apr 17 '14 at 17:44 comment added wax eagle @Lord_Gareth source specification should be done in the question.
Apr 17 '14 at 17:41 comment added DuckTapeAl @Lord_Gareth You could specify that in your question. Adding a line at the end of your question saying that you want something from an official source is an easy thing to do, and doesn't require a tag.
Apr 17 '14 at 17:39 comment added Lord_Gareth On the one hand I can get behind this, but on the other hand I find the RAW tag useful for indicating that you're looking for answers that don't involve homebrew, houserules, etc, so forth. How can we keep that function?
Apr 17 '14 at 17:34 comment added mxyzplk Agreed. In meta.rpg.stackexchange.com/questions/2984/… we changed it from [rules-lawyering] to [rules-as-written] but the answers were mostly along the lines of "ewwww, it's kind of a meta tag anyway..."
