I just noticed that we have a character tag, apparently for questions which are specifically about a particular character or characters in a work of literature.
Is this tag useful, or should we burninate it?
I'm going to take the George R R Martin approach here:
The purpose of tags is supposed to be for experts in a given subject to find questions to answer on that subject, but there are obviously no experts on characters in general.
It doesn't help searchability, since no-one is going to be interested in looking for all of the questions about all characters in all works of literature.
Most questions with this tag are about a specific character in a specific book, so why not just tag them with the tags for that book/series/author? There's no need to further point out "hey, this question is just about one character".
The tag hasn't been used consistently so far, which suggests it probably won't be in the future either. Many existing questions about characters don't have the character tag. If we're going to use it to classify questions but most of the questions that 'deserve' it don't have it, then the tag seems pretty useless.
Some of the above points are taken from the corresponding M&TV meta post; I think they apply equally well here.
