The description for the tag movie is as follows:
Use this tag when specifying the question is about the movie version or adaptation of a story.
This raises a couple questions:
- Could this imply that the OP is looking for answers specific to the movie version of a work, and thus unintentionally turning away possible answers from other versions, even when the question itself does not specify which sources to use? Since wikis are written for the site's audience, it seems we'd want everyone to know exactly what they're looking for.
- This answer mentions that, because the different versions contain different elements, that tagging with movie makes sense, but what if the question is about something they all share? Is it still appropriate to use this tag because the OP's question stemmed from something they saw while watching the movie?
Since I'm the one with the confusion, my suggestions would be that we either reword the wiki to specifically allow answers from other versions, or create a new tag (dibs) that can be used when the OP only wants answers based on the movie(s), such as movie-specific or something along those lines.
An example of a reworked wiki could be:
Use this tag when specifying the question is about the movie version or adaptation of a story. This tag does not disallow answers from the books, video games, or other versions of the story.
So far the normal thing to do when you only want answers about a specific universe is to state them in your question, and rewording the current wiki will allow that to continue. If we make the new tag, we might also want to make new ones (dibs) for book-specific and game-specific so all the generic bases are covered, similar to how star-wars-legends works for specifying canon.
So what are our thoughts on this?
