Part of the general network-wide SE code involves automatically removing single-use tags from the system. If a tag has no tag wiki and has only been used on a single question, it automatically disappears after a certain period of time, leaving that single question either with whatever other tags were on it or simply untagged.
Today @Gallifreyan noticed that Literature.SE had 12 untagged questions earlier today, due to this automatic cleanup. This undesired state of affairs has since been alleviated (at the time of writing there are only 4 remaining), but it's going to happen again, and we haven't even found the questions which had a single-use tag together with, say, symbolism or character-analysis.
Please can the "nuke single-use tags" rule be lifted for Literature SE?
We use tags for authors, and (at least currently) for titles of individual works and series. Under our policy that "all literature is equal, and no literature is more equal than others" (as exemplified by our topic challenges), it doesn't make sense to remove tags for authors without many questions. We must have dozens of books and authors about whom only a single question has been asked, and those books and authors have as much of a place on our site (and in our tagging system) as George Orwell and The Sandman. Please let them stay.
Yes, we could (and will, until this is fixed) try to write tag wikis for every new author and book to appear on the site. But this is a lot of work, and may not be feasible as the site becomes busier.
