Questions, such as [redwall] could apply to both the book and the series. How should we distinguish between questions about the book, but not the series as a whole?

Do the same thing we do with authors. A tag for the series, and a tag for specific books. If your question is about the series as a whole, use the series tag. If your question is about a specific book, use both the series tag and book tag.

In the case where the names overlap, you can use something like for the series, and reserve for the book itself. That makes it clear which is which, though we might have to do the occasional -> edit to fix mistakes. I've made the change to the two questions here.

  • @Catija Except that M&TV doesn't use author tags in this way. – Rand al'Thor Jan 22 '17 at 1:31
  • @Randal'Thor "If we can establish this kind of system all the way from private beta, Literature's tagging system will be way better than SFF's" - You realize this now? ;-) – Cahir Mawr Dyffryn æp Ceallach Jan 22 '17 at 2:37
  • @Randal'Thor only if the tag editing is kept up diligently ;) – Helmar Jan 22 '17 at 11:40
  • @Helmar which is why it's best to start now :) – fi12 Jan 22 '17 at 13:23
