In order of their folksonomic creation, we currently have the tags magic-items (May 16, 2011), crafting (Oct 1, 2014), and magic-item-creation (May 26 of this year).
Notably, the more general crafting tag lays claim to “… smithing, alchemy, magic item creation…”, while the newer magic-item-creation obviously lays full claim to magic item creation.
In the wild these are being used in a few combinations:
- magic-itemscrafting search (most common, being the oldest tags)
- magic-item-creation search
- magic-itemsmagic-item-creation search
- (no question uses all three) search
This is pretty inconsistent. It makes it a guessing game what tags to use when asking, editing, and searching. I think we should probably fix that.
What should our tagging convention be for questions about making magic items?
