It took me some time to gather the information I needed for a certain problem, and so I thought that I would post that here.

To be more specific: the information pertains to editing Warcraft 3 maps.

Seems to me like would be rather too specific for here, but the What topics can I ask here? indicates otherwise.

I'm not asking whether I should post my Q–and–A: I'll do that and judge by the reception.
I am asking for a new tag; if someone thinks that none should be made, then please explain for posterity.

  • \$\begingroup\$ Tags cannot just be created on their own. They have to be added to a question. What questions do you think deserve this tag? If there are none currently, you can ask some. Modding is certainly on-topic here, as long they aren't too broad / "how to get started" / opinion-based / whatever other off-topic reason. \$\endgroup\$

You don't need to wait for the tag to be created to post your Warcraft 3 modding question - or any other topic.

Once we have a question or a few about that topic, any user with 300 reputation can add the tag by editing the question to add it.

Our tags are generally descriptive, meaning they're about the kinds of questions we have, rather than prescriptive, about the kinds of questions we're allowed to have.

We sometimes confer on Meta to rename/merge/synonym-ize or blacklist tags if we find they're over-broad ("meta-tags"), excessively granular (like tagging each version of a largely consistent line of tools), or leading users astray from constructive Q&A practices. But for the majority, if an established user found it useful enough to add, then it's probably a useful tag, or at least not harmful. ;)
