This question is now a duplicate of:
Increase tag length to 30 characters on meta.gaming.stackexchange.com
When we at Gaming complained about the tag limit being too short, we were told that the current limit of 25 characters was set in stone and would never change. Since game name is pretty much the only form of tagging going on the site, this was already pretty painful.
You don't have to go exotic and pull games like "Do-Don-Pachi Dai-Fukkatsu" or "むかしむかしあるところにとてつもなく仲の悪いツインテールの姉妹姫様がいらっしゃいましたとさ"; even more common games like "Need for Speed: Most Wanted" or "Spider-man: Shattered Dimensions" just do not fit in 25 characters.
Today, I find the limit changed. Downwards. The tag length limit is now 24 on at least Gaming and Ubuntu (v 2010.9.14.4) and I assume it has changed on other SE sites as well. MSO is still at 25 characters (v 2010.9.14.1).
- Why has this happened? Is the change by design?
- How do you suggest we tag questions about topics that just do not fit in the allotted space?
