I'm interested in finding out when, exactly, a particular tag on one of the Stack Exchange sites was created.
Specifically, I'm trying to find out the adoption rate of the rules as written tag on RPG.SE. It's a relatively new tag, and it seems that in its lifetime, very few relevant questions have actually used it - but I'm interested in actually getting a handle on the exact numbers. I figure the best way is to find out the creation date of the tag, then how many questions were asked since that date.
I can't figure out a way to find it though:
- The tag wiki only mentions the date it was recorded, not that of the tag.
- Visiting the questions with that tag, sorting by Newest and going to the last page will only find the oldest question the tag has been added to - if the tag was created in 2012, a 2011 question might still appear there.
- Sorting by Active is better, but will mislead me if the oldest questions it got applied to have been active since.
- There doesn't appear to be a creation date on tags in the data explorer.
What can I do?
