How should we handle the questions which are specific to Legends (formerly C-canon EU) works, in light of post-Disney new Canon rules?
Mark all such questions with a new star-wars-legends tag.
No need to edit anything in the answers
Optionally, some of the questions where EU works don't have an answer as of 2014, add an answer which states that most likely, this can never be answered since Lucasfilm indicated no new Legends (formerly EU C-canon) works will be published.
- Allows people who don't care about Legends/EU materials to easily filter out Legends specific content
- VERY self explanatory and intuitive, both for old-time EU fans (who tend to know what Legends mean) and to new fans brought in by 2015 release of Episode VII, who won't even know what EU means but might know the new Legends brand.
- Requires a lot of work to retag all Legends specific questions
- May cause a flood of updates to Recently Updated questions page/feed.
- Both of these can be addressed if we collect a list of question IDs to retag; and request SE team to retag them on the back-end (should be 10 mins of work to BCP in a list of IDs, and run 1 update query on tags table).
Just to elaborate on why a new tag is needed, instead of re-using existing extended-universe tag:
That tag is not Star Wars specific
It does it help new post-2014 fans who will view the site material without knowing what Extended Universe is in terms of Star Wars.
Its Wiki is NOT relevant to Disney Star Wars Legends brand. And due to #1 it can't really be fixed.
It can't be used to ignore "Legends-only" material due to #1.
That tag isn't necessarily used consistently right now; and very possibly is present on questions which are NOT Legends-material-only even within Star Wars questions
Vice versa, it is now missing from many existing Legends-only questions, meaning we would STILL need to do extensive cleanup to make the tag work - thus we don't even get the benefit of "well, EU tag already is on a bunch of questions, so it's less work".
Just use the existing extended-universe.
