Right now there are two questions (553 and 686) on the site about World of Darkness. 553 is tagged with both [wod] and [world-of-darkness], 686 with [world-of-darkness]. Which is the preferable parent tag for the purpose of tag synonyms?

I'd be more inclined to use the world-of-darkness tag, primarily because of the extra descriptiveness over the abbreviation, which some people may not by familiar with.

    \$\begingroup\$ Yeah, I don't think we gain any thing for tag brevity, and it's not as familiar as D&D (or dd, as we call it round these parts.) \$\endgroup\$

    \$\begingroup\$ Another issue may be search. World-of-Darkness may be to our advantage when it comes to google. \$\endgroup\$ Aug 26, 2010 at 5:19

I've suggested [wod] as a synonym for [world-of-darkness]. If you have over a thousand rep, come on over and vote.

  • \$\begingroup\$ May be a bit before you have all 4 votes. Since there are currently just 3 with 1000+ rep. \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ Yeah, and I don't get to both vote and suggest. Figured I'd flag it anyhow. \$\endgroup\$
