Currently our tag (and related tags) are a mess something that can probably be fixed fairly easily given that there are around thirty questions overall (this query, courtesy of @SQB, yields 32 results).

Furthermore the tag description for is misleading:

Lego is a line of plastic construction toys that are manufactured by The Lego Group. Questions which ask for identification of SF and fantasy toys built with Lego are on-topic, any others are not, and belong on bricks.SE.

... yet only 6 questions (out of 16) are ID.

This could be the occasion to assemble a tagging policy for LEGO-related tags.

Hence, what to build with LEGO?


For the record, our current other LEGO tags are , , , , and .

    I think we have jumped the shark with the gimmick tag titles. – KutuluMike Nov 30 '18 at 0:25

First MOC

TL;DR:


I propose

Cross-universe cases:

Seems fairly in line with what's done with other materials/franchises, and (though my figures might be slightly off) the amount of retagging involved can probably be done smoothly over a week or so.

    What's a MOC? – Rand al'Thor Nov 29 '18 at 14:58

    @Randal'Thor My Own Creation, which is what AFoLs (Adult Fans of Lego) call models they designed themselves. – SQB Nov 29 '18 at 16:11
  • Re cross-universe cases: Lots of these things look on-topic to me... Do we need a general system for handling them? – Kevin Dec 2 '18 at 4:39

    (For example, should we create lego-adaptation-game or something? I should point out that all of these games are basically the same game but with different window dressing.) – Kevin Dec 2 '18 at 4:46
  • @Kevin we have [lego-star-wars], I can imagine [lego-harry-potter] or [lego-harry-potter], tagged along with [Lego] and [franchise]. Not like there will be tons of them in the years to come, I think – Jenayah Dec 2 '18 at 10:21
  • @Jenayah: LOTR, Marvel, and DC all already have games and they have more lined up for 2019. – Kevin Dec 2 '18 at 16:57

    @Kevin sorry, I was unclear; I meant there wouldn't be a heckton of questions about those. – Jenayah Dec 2 '18 at 16:59
  • FWIW there are LEGO Star Wars short films so that could be what the tag is used for but I haven't looked. – TheLethalCarrot Dec 3 '18 at 10:36
  • Can you make it explicit whether we should use [lego] on questions about Lego Harry Potter video games and Lego Star Wars video games? We don't seem to have any clear examples yet, but scifi.stackexchange.com/q/85804/4918 scifi.stackexchange.com/q/41192/4918 ask about multiple video games, including lego ones. – b_jonas Dec 3 '18 at 12:13
  • @b_jonas I'd say both of those can use either the relevant [lego-game-tag] or just [video-games] as they cover even non-Lego ones. Sometimes we should look on a case-by-case basis, of course – Jenayah Dec 3 '18 at 12:29
  • there was an entire Lego Star Wars series as well - but I think it was officially declared as non-canon (Freemaker Adventures) – NKCampbell Dec 3 '18 at 19:22
