I just burninated the tag. It had no wiki, and appeared to be uselessly broad, since almost every question on here is about rules.

I'm leaving this question here to record this burnination. If this tag crops up again, we'll know it isn't the first time, and maybe it'll be worth blacklisting.

This tag has been burninated at least once before, and has risen from the grave yet again. It should probably be blacklisted. (There isn't a direct record of it, but: it was discussed in 2010 and yet the usages below were from March this year at the earliest, meaning it silently disappeared between these two times.)

Questions it was attached to:

trogdor was personally involved in this burnination

    \$\begingroup\$ It had already been killed once, so that makes it an undead tag. Maybe it needs to go on the blacklist or whatever our "never again" tag feature is called. \$\endgroup\$ Commented Sep 8, 2014 at 3:24

    \$\begingroup\$ Oh hey. It was a bit weird that this iteration was so recent so I expected it might have been here before. I totally support blacklisting it, it's in the same category as [game] or [rpg]. \$\endgroup\$ Commented Sep 8, 2014 at 3:30

    \$\begingroup\$ Mods can't do that, it requires dev intervention, see meta.stackexchange.com/questions/95811/… I'm not sure if tag-blacklist-request will work here but let's see! \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ @mxyzplk I'm requesting information on how to handle this on Meta SE; I've switched the tag on this question to just blacklist-request based on the guidance from Shog9 \$\endgroup\$ Commented Sep 11, 2014 at 0:16

The tags , , , and have all been blacklisted. Attempting to use them will produce the following warning:

If your question concerns the rules of a game, that will be abundantly obvious. Instead, make sure you're clearly describing the question you have *concerning* those rules.

  • \$\begingroup\$ Wait, no mechanics tag? How am I supposed to ask my question about designing the proper physics formula into my new game for how a trebuchet works :)? \$\endgroup\$

Yes, it should go. Vote for me, for the record. Hello, any SE dev that cares, can you blacklist this for us?
