The book/line nWoD: Blood and Smoke a styx chronicle is set to recieve a new name and cover (and no other major changed), and be rerelease as Vampire the Requiem 2nd edition

The only user of , recently edited his question to use (a new tag).

The options now are to:

  • copy the tag wiki across and delete the old tag, or let the tag delete itself when X months go buy without questions.

  • or to create a synonym (but fix the tag to be )

Possibly creating a synonym is unnecessary, and the wiki should just be moved. I think in this case it is more likely to be necessary since the book has actually been released under 2 titles.

    \$\begingroup\$ as of this weekend Blood and Smoke has been removed from DriveThru, if you have purchased it you'll notice you now have Vampire the Requiem 2e in your library. Can we please create vampire-requiem-2e and synomise it with blood-and-smoke. Per above, the canonical tag should be the 2e one \$\endgroup\$ – xenoterracide Nov 30 '14 at 22:09
  • \$\begingroup\$ @xenoterracide There are all of seven questions tagged blood-and-smoke. Wouldn't it be faster to just remove those and add the desired tag? \$\endgroup\$ – C. Ross Dec 13 '14 at 12:48
  • \$\begingroup\$ @C.Ross I thought we were not wanting to do that previously to preserve tag subscribers and for sure get the synonym. \$\endgroup\$ – xenoterracide Dec 13 '14 at 18:05
  • \$\begingroup\$ @C.Ross oh, and during the holy war discussions over the tags, I got yelled at for doing that, so I didn't do that this time. \$\endgroup\$ – xenoterracide Dec 13 '14 at 18:15

    \$\begingroup\$ @xenoterracide You were asked to not change lots of tags without discussion. The "lots" and "without discussion" was the problem then. The discussion has been had now though, and making it happen is fine. \$\endgroup\$ – SevenSidedDie Dec 13 '14 at 21:09

From How can we get rid of misspelled and unused (or “zombie”) tags? on meta:

Tags not associated with any question are automatically destroyed at 03:00 UTC every day.

It's currently ~23:48Z. This tag is going to be deleted in about three hours. (It doesn't take months.)

    \$\begingroup\$ Ok, I am going to proactively copy the tag wiki over and update the link in the other tag wikis \$\endgroup\$ – Lyndon White Aug 30 '14 at 23:51
  • \$\begingroup\$ I thought that was turned off for RPG.SE? \$\endgroup\$ – SevenSidedDie Aug 31 '14 at 1:00
  • \$\begingroup\$ @SevenSidedDie I don't think so. Maybe you're thinking of Retaining lonely system tags and its kinda-resolution Save our system tags? \$\endgroup\$ – doppelgreener Aug 31 '14 at 1:14
  • \$\begingroup\$ I think I am! But even so, we still have lots of zombie tags if you go to the last pages of our tag list. It's possible I just don't understand something about the process though. \$\endgroup\$ – SevenSidedDie Aug 31 '14 at 1:25
  • \$\begingroup\$ @SevenSidedDie Those are synonyms of other tags, it's a weird way of handling things but they stick around like that. \$\endgroup\$ – doppelgreener Aug 31 '14 at 1:26
  • \$\begingroup\$ Aha, that's it! Thanks, TIL. :) \$\endgroup\$ – SevenSidedDie Aug 31 '14 at 1:28
  • \$\begingroup\$ downvoting because this answer is out of date, and new action is needed \$\endgroup\$ – xenoterracide Dec 13 '14 at 18:31
  • \$\begingroup\$ @xenoterracide then the question should be updated with the new situation, or the dupe closure reversed \$\endgroup\$ – doppelgreener Dec 14 '14 at 0:05

Relatedly, do we want the tag to instead be or the like?

    \$\begingroup\$ @SevenSidedDie I daresay nothing's being done as a community yet, since we haven't seen what the new Onyx Path trade dress is going to be. Once the covers start coming out, you'll see consensus. \$\endgroup\$ – Jadasc Aug 31 '14 at 3:40

    \$\begingroup\$ @SevenSidedDie Following up on this: the new trade dress says "Vampire: the Requiem - Second Edition," so I think 2E is just fine. \$\endgroup\$ – Jadasc Dec 12 '14 at 15:41
