I've noticed recently that some edits have been made to start adding in to some questions asking "help me identify a tv show about x".

There are currently only 24 questions using this tag.

Should we continue using it, or should we discontinue using it and use for all "help me identify" questions regardless of the media?

If we should be using exclusively for these questions, should the two be synonymized?

  • And here I was, thinking it was a demand to show my identification.

We certainly shouldn't use . Definitely use the standard , and I'm inclined to say as well. We don't generally include medium, but I think story ID is broad enough to warrant it.

  • Yes, that was IIRC what we originally decided when this was debated in the past. Can't seem to find a link Commented Dec 5, 2013 at 21:15
  • Given this, should the show-identification tag be made a synonym of story-identification?
