The tag should never see the light of day on Stack Overflow again.

Most of the few questions associated with this tags are either closed or asked by new users that don't understand the topics here.

If the question is programming related, there are a lot of more relevant tags a user can use. If it requires the information it is off topic and should be migrated to Game Development .

    +1 for the pic. Now I have even more reason to fear BoltClock – Servy Jun 10 '13 at 17:29
  • I'm surprised that so many of those questions are still open. Just kidding, I'm not. But they won't be open in a minute... – LittleBobbyTables - Au Revoir Jun 10 '13 at 17:33
  • We can't migrate questions older than 60 days. – George Stocker Jun 10 '13 at 17:45
  • @GeorgeStocker Can't you simply delete them ? – ʞunɥdɐpɐɥd Jun 10 '13 at 17:54
  • We could, but we have credo to not unilaterally delete good content. That having been said, if the community deletes it, that's a whole 'nother issue. – George Stocker Jun 10 '13 at 17:57
  • @GeorgeStocker How could the comunnity delete it ? By closing it ? – ʞunɥdɐpɐɥd Jun 10 '13 at 17:59

    @ʞunɥdɐpɐɥd I think George means 20K community members exercising their delete privledge – psubsee2003 Jun 10 '13 at 18:01
  • @psubsee2003 Thanks. – ʞunɥdɐpɐɥd Jun 10 '13 at 18:07
  • Why isn't that image in source called burning_unicorn_of_death.jpg??? – Ryan Jun 10 '13 at 18:15
  • @ryan I deserve a downvote for this. You can change it before someone else notice... – ʞunɥdɐpɐɥd Jun 10 '13 at 18:16

    Is that Anna Lear's cat riding that unicorn? – animuson Jun 10 '13 at 18:48
  • The implication that it's off topic for Stack Overflow is incorrect. It's true that Game Development has a more specific scope, but that doesn't mean it's off topic. Questions regarding programming in the field of game development are most definitely on topic for Stack Overflow. – casperOne Jun 10 '13 at 19:19

    @casperOne ". Questions regarding programming in the field of game development are most definitely on topic for Stack Overflow." you're right about this.But my point here is that if I have a programming problem with a video game, my tags should be something like : C#, XNA 4.0, VideoGames. Adding the fact that the game is a MMORPG will not bring anything relevant to the post on Stack Overflow. Questions about video games programming should be asked here yes, but they should be tagged properly. – ʞunɥdɐpɐɥd Jun 10 '13 at 19:26

    I didn't even read the post before up-voting; the picture did it for me. Turns out the content merited an up-vote, too! – Andrew Barber Jun 24 '13 at 13:03
