This question is motivated because of this question.
I've created the tag puzzle-logy for it, out of need, but it was subsequently removed by the moderators. I don't argue with that decision, nor was I in particularly keen on the tag, but I think there is still an unsolved issue here:
I was looking for a tag, and couldn't find an appropriate one. This question is about finding or creating a suitable tag.
I wanted to tag the question as a question about puzzles in general (as opposed to a particular puzzle, or the process of puzzle-creation.). A tag about "the science of puzzles" (if there is one). That's why I created puzzle-logy in analogy to bio-logy, geo-logy etc.
I wanted questions tagged with this tag to be f.e. about
- science papers on puzzles
- puzzle-theory (on an abstract level)
- people/organisations which dedicated themselves to puzzle-understanding (not solving!)
Do you find such a tag useful?
What would be a good name / wiki for such a tag?
In case that your answer to the first question is no, I instead need help with properly tagging this question. I don't think it can be done with the currently existing tags. Maybe puzzle-categories would fit, but my feeling was, it's to specific and a tag which is only used once on site, is rather useless. So please come up with suggestions.
I have now created a tag called puzzle-theory. Please edit it's wiki, if you feel it needs further clarification.
