I've accepted the option mobile-armored-strike-kommand as that has currently the highest score (+14/-1). Adding a synonym for mask-mobile-armored-strike-kommand (so prefixed with
mask) should improve the chances of the correct tag being found.
Yesterday, this question was posted:
We didn't have a tag for the franchise, so I added mobile-armored-strike-kommand.
Is this tag the best tag for this franchise?
The name of the franchise is M.A.S.K, which stands for Mobile Armored Strike Kommand. While not an actual backronym, since all characters wear helmets with special powers, it's likely that they came up with the acronym first, then made up something to fit it.
It consists of a toy line, an animated TV series that ran for two seasons (1985–1986), a short comics run, and three video games.
Currently, we don't have enough questions to warrant a subdivision for the different franchises. We went years without a single one. After the first one, we quickly received three other questions about the franchise (one of which was mine).
The following suggestions were made in chat:
Current tag. Unambiguous, but not easily recognisable for people who only remember the acronym and not easily discoverable either.
As close as we can get to the acronym. Pretty unambiguous, but still not easily discoverable.
Very ambiguous, will need disambiguation in its usage guidance to differentiate between M.A.S.K., The Mask (green-headed Jim Carrey), the DC villain, the general idea of masks, and possibly other characters or works with the same name. Easily discoverable, though.
May still need disambiguation to clarify which Mask franchise. Still easily discoverable.
We usually don't use tags with the year in it for an entire franchise, although in this case both the TV series and the toy line are from that same year. Still easily discoverable.
