In this question, I mentioned that the tag may not the best choice for the question, as the tag only covers the first series, Avatar: The last Airbender. The question, however covers both, Avatar: The last Airbender and The Legend of Korra. Should there be a second tag , or should the Avatar-Tag be generalized? A new tag can make searches more specific, however both series are simply referred to as Avatar, most times.

    Seeing as how it's not even anime, it should, IMO, not even be allowed on this site. Mar 7, 2013 at 18:42
  • @coleopterist: That was already discussed and it was decided to allow it as a pilot.

I think that in this case, the tag should be created and used for both The Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra. Madara's example of having a and tag to tell the two series apart isn't a very good one since everybody just uses the plain Naruto tag for both series.

To deal with differentiating the two series, I propose that be used for both with related synonyms for and . This way searching "avatar" will yield results for both series as they're both commonly referred to as Avatar and searching for either of the synonyms will give results for those particular series.

  • Are you sure that avatar will not be used for anything else? Other than The last Airbender or Legend of Korra? Is there no other anime which includes "avatar" in the name? Feb 19, 2013 at 19:02
  • I'm not exactly a fountain of knowledge when it comes to names of anime/manga but I don't know of any off the top of my head. I'm sure it could be used for other animes though if they use the word avatar in the name. Feb 19, 2013 at 19:08
  • Using a single tag to reference a series and a contiuation of that series is fine. Using a single tag for a lot of different series is not. Feb 19, 2013 at 19:40

I think a second tag is in order. If we have and , we should have both tags.

Questions from both tags can be searched for by searching for [avatar*].

  • I'm not entirely certain your example was a very good one considering nobody uses the shippuuden tag. All Naruto questions have been asked under the generalized Naruto tag whether they're from the original series or shippuuden. In fact, looking at that tells me that it might be better to just have a generic avatar tag and use the other two tags as synonyms. Feb 19, 2013 at 16:49
