The [random] tag is no more
Unless anyone has any objections or wants to salvage/synonym random somehow, I'm going to burninate it in a couple of days. Randomness itself doesn't seem like a useful area of expertise, and the tag ...
The [multiple-systems] tag has been burninated
I've just burninated multiple-systems. I'm leaving this post for record-keeping. It had the following tag wiki excerpt (and no full tag wiki): For questions that involve multiple rules systems at ...
Do we really need [rulings]?
This question (which is really more about semantics) added the rulings tag, and the author of that question is also the person who added the description to the tag. I personally feel that this tag is ...
Save our system tags!
According to this meta suggestion, single-use tags will no longer expire if they have a tag wiki. We have a historic problem whereby users will ask about a game system (and a tag will be created for ...
Call for voting posse: synonym [open-game-license] to [ogl]
I just noticed that we have the (older, more well-established) ogl tag as well as the (newer, used on only two questions) open-game-license tag. I went to the ogl tag and suggested the other as a ...
Should we make the recommendation tags throw a warning or error?

System-Agnostic's tag wiki needs improvement
RPG SE uses system-agnostic a lot, and in a rather esoteric fashion. Its tag wiki, however, is a sad, sad thing: About system-agnostic Not related to any one particular system of rules. This really ...
Can we make [pbta] a synonym for [powered-by-the-apocalypse]?
In many places online, people refer to all games derived from Apocalypse World as "PbtA", short for "Powered by the Apocalypse". Could we make pbta a synonym for our powered-by-the-apocalypse tag?
Prioritize relevance over prevalence when suggesting tags
I noticed something annoying when writing a question with the edition-comparison tag: the suggested tags box prioritizes prevalence over relevance. If I type "edition" into the tag box, here ...
Please delete the misspelled [pronounciation] tag
I have accidentally misspelled pronunciation and thus created a meaningless pronounciation tag. I do not know how to (and probably do not have the privileges to) delete it. Apologies to the ...
Need tag abbreviation expansion/synonyms for SEO purposes
As previously discussed in: Proposed tag synonyms for [dnd4.0] we have a significant SEO problem stemming from our use of (semi-) standard abbreviations for RPG names in tags. This is exacerbated by ...
Small cleanup of the [faq-proposal] tag done
I've just cleaned up the faq-proposal meta tag. This isn't a big deal, but I'd like to leave a record of what changed and why a few very old questions just got edited. This tag had two kinds of ...
Synonym [nwod-god-machine] to [new-world-of-darkness-2e]
As discussed in Lets get a clear consensus on the use of [nwod] vs [nwod-god-machine], now that Onyx Path has officially rebranded the God Machine Rules Update as the second edition of New World of ...
Synonymize [loot] -> [treasure]
I just noticed we have both a loot tag and a treasure tag. They both mean the same thing - providing or acquiring items - and four questions are tagged with both. Could we make loot a synonym of ...
How to write Tag Wikis
I find many of our tag wikis to be recursive, to say the least, especially for the more difficult ones. What should a tag wiki include to be as useful as possible?
The [templates] tag has been burninated/re-tagged away into [character-templates]
Apparently we had a templates tag on these questions: How many templates can be applied to a summoned creature(s)? (asked September 2016) Where can I find extra templates for pathfinder? (asked ...
