I notice that a 'leaving-player' tag has been added. My personal opinion is that it is unnecessary, but want to try to get a consensus before going ahead and rolling back edits to the questions where it has been added.

    \$\begingroup\$ Suggest [leaving-player] synonyms to [groups]? Almost every question about players leaving is about group dynamics/management. It may be a useful synonym to catch people typing leav into the tag field. \$\endgroup\$ Dec 5 '13 at 1:10

I see nothing that the tag adds that isn't covered by , or even things like and such if necessary. I believe it's a bit overly specific.

It could lead to a slippery slope of "sub-tags" and eventually we'd have tags like .

  • Does this tag provide extra context on the question?

    No. How would you even ask this question without putting this information into the question itself?

  • Can you be an expert on the topic of "leaving-player?"

    That seems rather too specific.
