DCAU refers to DC animated universe and should be used for those questions only but here DCAU tag is used for DC Universe Animated Original Movies too which is wrong. Similar to MCU, DCAU is quite famous term among fans and it have distinct meaning and shouldn't be used with any random DC animated film.

Is it not better to remove it from non DCAU film questions? And submitting a better descriptive tag wiki like movies.se have for the same tag?

I am also ready for counter argument too.

  • correct tags is always a good thing. what should the correct tag be?

    The tag wiki specifies multiple universes with separate continuities. IMHO that's wrong, but it's what the wiki says right now.

    Looks like Ankit’s in the process of fixing things. He edited the tag wikis a little while ago. We’re saved!

I have tried to fix as much as I have clear idea about but had doubts with few question, like this beast boy question, as beast boy never directly appeared in DCAU but had partial cameo in Static shock. Might also have intentionally/unintentional left few vague ones, which others can help in sorting out.

Anyway Tag wiki for the tag has been fixed to elaborate what is counted as canon. I hope it help future tag users.
