I asked a new question about specific escape room movie, and a tag escape room was created

The escape-room tag has no usage guidance, can you help us create it?

Should I edit escape room tag with specific movie (2019) or genre of escape room movies?

There are at least 2019 and 2017 movies named Escape Room

For movie title tags the wiki should be about that specific movie.

A don't think a meta-tag for "escape rooms" is required here...there aren't going to be that many questions on that subject.

Tag names

For movies with the same name we have the current approach....

On first question for a new movie tag - We create the tag with just the name of the movie... so .

On first question for a movie with same name but different year - We create new tag with the year appended... e.g.

  • I was halfway through writing an answer of my own, but this pretty much covers everything. One minor thing: IMDb actually lists two movies called Escape Room that were released in 2017. What would happen if we received separate questions about both? Is there a precedent?

  • @F1Krazy - No I don't there is a precedent for that. I'd not be worrying until someone has a question. In order words, we'll deal with it when it happens ☺
