I recently noticed that we have these tags for Guardians of the Galaxy:

The first one I'm fine with, but the second two bother me for a couple reasons:

  • in the past (say, with Thor, Iron Man, and Ant-Man), when the first film in the series is named after the titular character, the film-tag has been the name of the film along with the year (see here)
  • we have no guarantee that the next film will be 'Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 3'; in fact, since Peter never got a third Awesome Mix, such a title wouldn't make much sense. Plus, while the first film is sometimes referred to as 'Vol. 1', that change doesn't seem to be official.

Thus, I propose the film tags to be renamed to the following:

The rename you propose is impossible. The current tag names are already exactly at the 25-character limit, so if you want to make the last part longer than a single character, you'll have to compensate by shortening the rest of the tag name, e.g. or . Personally I think looks better than either of these, given that the tag wiki excerpt is clear, but I'm not into Marvel/DC stuff, so I'm open to persuasion from those who are.

In fact, this very issue was already discussed during the big retagging event:

CreationEdge: @Randal'Thor can you rename to . I double-checked and all questions are about the movie.
Randal'Thor: @CreationEdge No, I can't. That breaks the character limit for tags.
CreationEdge: dang, was worried about that. then?
Randal'Thor: Done. Add to your list of tag wikis to rewrite once this is over.

  • Ah. Well, that's too bad. But definitely not the first time bad names have been used because of character limitations. – DaaaahWhoosh Jun 1 '17 at 20:24
  • @DaaaahWhoosh Here's a couple of feature requests you may want to upvote, if you haven't already. – Rand al'Thor Jun 1 '17 at 20:33
