A recently-created tag, should be blacklisted. It's a given that everything on the site will be about a movie or TV show, so having such a uselessly broad tag is not helpful. Usually, tags that match a SE's site name are auto-blacklisted for this reason, it looks like this one slipped through the cracks.

  • Mmm, I agree with the sentiment - but having looked at the tag management pages, don't know how to do this via the tools. Is this something that can only be done by making a request to the SE staff?

  • SE staff have the tools.

  • In this case movie (which I have already seen, and removed, somewhere) should be, too.

  • Given that this tag has been used recently, I wonder what "blacklisting" actually does at all.

  • @NapoleonWilson - I tried to do a sample question, it disallowed the movie tag, but seems to allow the tv tag.

I have added tv and movie to the tags blacklist.

  • You sure? See Napoleon's comment above.

  • Yes, it would appear that the tv is not / no longer blacklisted for some reason.

  • TV as a tag seems more and more like it could have relevance as opposed to making a fargo-tv tag and a from-dusk-to-dawn-tv tag, etc. As more movie becomes series why make a new tag for each when there's an easier, more efficient way? Apr 18, 2014 at 8:32
  • Could someone please finally explain what's the actual deal with blacklisting and what the final decision for those tags is? Since yet again this answer seems wrong.

  • For the same reason, shouldn't the television tag be blacklisted too? Jun 19, 2014 at 18:18
  • Why is this not blacklisted??? We just had it created... again... movies.stackexchange.com/questions/46891/…
