Can we get an [ancillary-sword] tag to go with the and tags?

    What prevents you from just creating the tag? The need for it seems quite apparent from the existence of the other tags listed in your question. – TARS Mar 17 '19 at 14:55
  • Doh — I didn't realize I had that ability! – orome Mar 17 '19 at 14:59

    You get the ability to create tags at 300 reputation :-) – Rand al'Thor Mar 17 '19 at 16:00
  • I have a feeling there's too much tags around here. Just the tag for Imperial Radch would do. – Mithoron Mar 21 '19 at 17:42

    @Mithoron We should follow whatever the site policy is for trilogies, etc. For example what does it do with LotR or HDM? – orome Mar 21 '19 at 17:56

    It looks like if we remove the individual book tags for this we have a lot of cleanup to do throughout: Those and many other others have tags for each book. – orome Mar 21 '19 at 17:59
  • Did I say anything about this policy? What I said is about tag making. Tags are made when they're needed and tag for 1 or even 3 questions isn't particularly useful when there's a bigger tag with still only 10 q. – Mithoron Mar 21 '19 at 18:09

    @Mithoron I'm not sure what you mean by "needed". Having a convenient way to find out that there are only a few questions about something is pretty helpful, imv. But if that's the site policy, sure. (Though I'm not sure it is: most new SO tags, for example, have less than 3 questions.) – orome Mar 21 '19 at 18:26
  • That's just my ideas: adding first author tag, second franchise, third separate instalments when number of questions grows. – Mithoron Mar 21 '19 at 18:45
  • @Mithoron Like I said, whatever the site policy is. – orome Mar 21 '19 at 19:20
  • Well, there was this scifi.meta.stackexchange.com/questions/4860/… but SE communities aren't all that rules-driven, ultimately things are kinda fluid... – Mithoron Mar 21 '19 at 20:50

    @Mithoron To clarify here the tagging currently used is fine. Franchise/series tag + book tags is perfectly acceptable. Different works handle this differently but if the precedent is already set for series + work then we should follow that. Importantly we should always try and use the series/franchise tag in any case. Lastly, author tags are only really to be used on questions about the author. There are a few exceptions to this but they don't apply in this case. – TheLethalCarrot Mar 22 '19 at 11:48

As you found out you already had the required reputation (300) for the Create Tags privilege and so have since created it. See: .

In the future when you create the tag you can also edit the tag wiki to add in a usage excerpt to describe how the tag should be used. Please do so as this helps other users work out when to use the tag!
