I notice that there are very specific tags like 'crowd control' which is not an area of Sci-Fi or Fantasy nor is it relevant to any particular work. Do we need tags like this?

What is the policy on creating new tags/removing unused and old tags?

If you notice an ultraspecific tag, you can remove it or replace it by a more general tag. Ask in chat or on meta if you aren't sure.

  • what should you do if you find a tag that should be removed pendragon, but you don't have enough rep to do it yourself?

  • @numaroth If a tag is only used on a small number of questions, you can edit those questions to remove it (that's the normal way to remove a tag anyway: it goes away if no more questions use it). Unless it's obvious, ask for advice in chat or on meta before unilaterally removing a tag. If a tag is used on more than a handful of questions, removing it warrants a meta discussion.
