Third party publishers themselves are awesome, so their existence isn't in question.

Rather, I'm wondering about the tag. Ostensibly it's meant to indicate the question's referencing third party material, but

  • it barely gets used (6 questions since its creation in February this year).
  • we haven't generally needed it for discussing third-party stuff, and I don't see what it adds.
  • I get the feeling it might be a meta tag: it doesn't even mean much on its own, it just means "not by whoever made this game". et al. would be more meaningful. This means the tag describes what it isn't about (first-party material) better than what it is about (any specific third-party publisher).

Tagging's a folksonomy and all that, so we tend to go with whatever people feel should be tagged, but this is a tag I feel we don't need and would be better off removing.

Should we get rid of this tag? Is it beneficial to have or are we better off without it?


This tag has been burninated!

I've removed the tag from these questions:

I will note expressly this was regarding 's use to indicate "I am asking about material which happens to be from a third party publisher in this circumstance".

This doesn't preclude ever having a tag that is for questions specifically about the third party publishing process.
