Added after running into yet another query regarding it. Went ahead and tagged a number of older questions on the topic, although I halted around 5 or so so as to avoid spamming the site. I'll admit that it's not really my genre of fiction, but it seems to come up often enough, generally as part of a query, although it's more often an manhua from China.

    I did wonder why there were suddenly so many of these questions crowding the front page. A fair tag, I think

    I can see people adding this tag to any sort of question related to agriculture ...

  • @Randal'Thor: Possibly. I know we had a lot of people using the portal tag for the game and for "portal fantasies". :)

    Time to add this tag to all the cosmere questions about cultivation.

  • Why cultivation instead of xianxia?

  • @FuzzyBoots yes, and following those guidelines I think xianxia would've been a good tag name as well. I'm not saying it's wrong to chosen cultivation, though.

  • Perhaps xianxia as a synonym?

  • That would be reasonable. As I understand it, it would have to become a tag first.

  • Maybe it should be tagged as xianxia rather than cultivation, since that's the actual name of the genre? It looks like the former tag already existed, too, so maybe they should be merged?

  • I'm open to discussion. We have a Meta discussion that recommends against non-English tags, and "cultivation" seems like the more common term used in questions. The "xianxia" tag was added by me in an attempt to merge the two as synonyms.
