Seems a bit ambiguous, since 'stat' and 'stats' can mean a lot of different things.

Can't think of a better alternative off the top of my head though.

"character design", perhaps?

Anybody mind if I use "art" for the art for gaming thread? Or would we rather use something else?

What brought this on? Is this going to be an official rule for the forums?

Yes. You get until August to adjust. After that non-compliant threads will be locked, and any forumites not using the proper tags will be permabanned.
Of course, this is a joke.

In the case of an only mildly questionable use of an established Tag a temporary ban could be argued though, especially if the subject was an otherwise productively contributing poster.
In a repeat case a permaban is unavoidable though.
Yes, it's a joke
Maybe these clarifications of the rules should be included in the initial post so new posters won't miss it? ...still joking

Are you aware that fnorded text is converted to plain in the e-mail version?

While I approve of harsh sentences for uninformative subject lines, the "need" for tagging could be greatly reduced by giving GURPS a 2nd level forum section to itself, with pre-tagged 3rd level subsections. It's silly to cram 21K threads and 360K posts into the same index, when you have a dozen or so other forums with 2-and 3-digit totals.
