For posts about the use, behavior, or policies related to tags, which are labels applied to questions to group them for search and categorization purposes.

Questions on the Game Development Stack Exchange can have up to five tags that categorize it. Tags are for search and for filtering. They are about helping experts in a specific domain connect with users who are asking about problems within that domain.

Tags should not be used to summarize what a question contains, but rather to document what problem the question is about.

For more information see the section on tagging in the Help Center.

Questions on the Game Development Meta site must use one of several required tags, which are distinguished by having a darker background than other tags on meta. Similarly, certain tags can only be applied by moderators. These are shown with a red background.
