How do we feel about Genre Tags?

Is sr4-matrix too specific?

Yes, it's too specific IMO. We don't have "dnd3-feats" and "dnd3-skills", you use dnd3 + spells. All sr4-matrix questions also have shadowrun-sr4 on them so we should synonym sr4-matrix to - hmm, matr …

How should we tag the editions of Rolemaster?

In general, we don't need to plan tags. Tagging here is an emergent folksonomy. Tags are created because someone's asking questions about something, and for no other reason. … We go from a generic tag down to version tags if and when it matters. For many games it doesn't. …
