The 'creatures' tag seems to be redundant with the more popular 'monsters' tag. Would it be possible to delete it?

Probably keep both, because not all creatures will be 'monsters'.

I would find an alphabetized list of standard tags helpful. Rather than guess at which ones already exist, one could just look at the list and see that the one they're thinking of is already there.

At the moment the tag cloud probably has most of them in it. There are entries there which only point to a single thread.

EDIT: Actually, it seem that there aren't currently any one-thread entries in the tag cloud. A couple of days ago there were some.

Oh! I didn't even realize there was a tag cloud. Found it.

The 'optional rules' tag doesn't seem to be being used correctly - the threads it is linked to are all discussing what I believe are called 'house rules'. In GURPS, optional rules generally means published rules which aren't used as standard (like Defensive Attacks, Extra Effort in Combat or multiple Rapid Strikes).

'Chargen' and 'character creation' are both tags about the same thing and point to exactly the same threads.

'Psi' seems to be redundant with the more popular 'psionics'.

Indeed so.

Note that it's a tag cloud for the entire SJGames Forums, not just this forum. (Selecting the tag "tags" from the cloud will pull up both this thread and its counterpart in the In Nomine forum, for example.)
