We have four very closely related tags - crosswords, crossword-clues, cryptic-crosswords, cryptic-clues - of whose usage patterns I'm not entirely sure. The tag wiki excerpts aren't really helpful either, and I don't think these four tags are consistently being used differently.
Are these four tags different enough to actually merit different tags?
In theory, we could use the
clues tags for puzzles containing just a few crossword-style clues, and the
crosswords tags for puzzles containing entire crosswords, while using
cryptic if the crossword clues are in rigorous CC style and not if they aren't.
In practice, are the tags actually being used this way? (I don't think so, but I haven't checked in detail.) Is it feasible to enforce them being used this way? (Bear in mind that hardly anyone reads tag wikis, and people often use the tags which sound like the might apply, leaving it to others to retag if needed.) If not, should we merge them into just one or two tags with clearer usage guidance?
