I recently retagged this question from to because I was trying to reduce the number of questions that had the tag and nothing else and was obviously clearly related even if it didn't seem directly applicable (the question specifies written transcripts rather than audio or AV recordings).

Would it make sense to either create a more general tag (or something along those lines) and retag the questions, or alternately to simply make a synonym for the tag (I'll admit to not knowing much about about how tag synonyms work)?

No, because it'll never get used and no one will think to use it?

Tagging here should be emergent. People know "podcast" and will tag using it and search using it, it's obviously useful. Something more general isn't.

For written summaries, common terms are "session summaries," "story hours" and "actual plays". You can try one of those on for size for that Q I'd think.

    \$\begingroup\$ "Actual play" is a thing I'd like to see-- at least as a synonym. \$\endgroup\$
