Stackoverflow model disallow user from creating tags belove some quite high reputation level. But this particular site really need specific tags for more or less popular games. I would like to propose to introduce some tags proposing mechanism, because right now there are so many untagged questions and this number will be just rising.

  • why the downvote? If you don't like the idea then please explain why.

This is by design, and is unlikely to be implemented.

Less popular game tags can be saved by users with even zero reputation by asking a question about the same game that currently has an status. Feel free to take up the mantle, just note in the question that it needs retagging, and please link to the other question about the same game so the tag isn't purged in 6 months.

  • how do I note? just leaving a comment?

  • @0lukasz0, You can leave a comment or just make it the last line of the question (since it will require editing anyway)

I think this is a reasonable concern. It seems likely to me that a new user will have a question about a game for which there is no tag, and may struggle to find the tag.

Incidentally Arqade (the gaming stack exchange site) has got the auto-deletion of single use tags turned off: https://gaming.meta.stackexchange.com/q/5379/3958

    you cannot tag a question with untagged, the site will report an error box explaining as much. It is still a concern, because a user cannot create a question without a tag, but probably cannot find the proper tag (if the game doesn't exist), hopefully the will resort to mistaking instead of not asking the question.

  • @user1873 Thanks, I didn't know that. Also of interest is that you can't create tags from the mobile site (even as a user with enough reputation)
