I see that we've recently gained as a new tag. It feels to me like it's both:

  • too specific, as it's a tag for one specific character ability, and
  • too general, as it could be for any game with a rage ability, even though different games might use the concept very differently.

If I had to make a decision on my own, I'd get rid of the tag. Thankfully, there's a whole community of more knowledgeable people than me here.

Is useful?

We don't have enough information yet to say.

Tagging on the Stack Exchange is an "emergent folksonomy," which means we let tags grow as the community sees a need and we don't curate tags until an actual problem crops up--then we fix that particular problem.

I'm not seeing any problem with yet, so let's wait and see how it does.

There is presently one question tagged : unsurprising as it is a new tag. Searching for "rage question", there are 113 questions across a multitude of systems that could benefit from it. There is a smaller number of hits from , another class feature, but all of these are associated with or . If merits a tag, certainly does.

    \$\begingroup\$ It seems like the question then becomes: "Do any specific class features deserve their own tag?" \$\endgroup\$ – Soldier of Vol Aug 17 '16 at 2:57

  • \$\begingroup\$ I noticed you went out and tagged some questions with rage. I am slightly concerned about this; Is it your intention to tag all of the 113, or are the 8 you tagged the only ones you think are fitting the tag? \$\endgroup\$ – Tritium21 Aug 21 '16 at 19:43
  • \$\begingroup\$ @Tritium21 only the ones I got around to ... So far \$\endgroup\$ – Dale M Aug 22 '16 at 0:12
  • \$\begingroup\$ Update: today, we have 70 of these. most of them dnd5 or pathfinder. \$\endgroup\$ – Trish Mar 8 at 18:33
