We have a 5e tag again, that's distinct from . Should we synonymize it or just wait for it to be cleaned up again? (pretty sure I've removed this tag to let it die before...)

It's definitely not the first time that tag's come up, and I've removed it once or twice myself.

I'll get it added to our tag blacklist. Specifically, we'll blacklist a tag that's composed just of number followed by an "e" (or "ed" or "edition").

I'm not inclined to synonymise it: other 5th editions exist, and since this isn't D&D Stack Exchange, our tags shouldn't be synonymised like that. If we instead blacklist it we can use this as a learning opportunity about our taxonomy, since blacklisted tags can come with information about what to do instead.


The blacklist request has been raised here: Blacklist #-edition tags
