Prompted by Michael Edenfield’s comment in chat.
A quick glance through the series tag shows that it seems to be used for a couple of things:
- Story ID questions that the OP remembers were part of a series
- Questions about TV shows and books that happened to come in a series (note that we used to have a [tv-series] tag, which become a synonym for [tv])
But it’s clearly not applied very well: it would be easy to find hundreds of questions that meet one or both of these criteria that don’t have the series tag.
This smells of being a meta tag.
At the moment, there are only about 65 questions with this tag. I don’t see how it provides a useful categorisation.
Should we get rid of this tag? And if not, should we clarify its purpose?
down to 38 28 12 questions.
