Right now the current description for the gods tag is:
For questions about beings with superhuman powers, closely tied to a specific property and worshipped by ancient people.
Let's ignore the obvious fact that gods aren't solely "worshiped by ancient people." Right now, the tag is extremely unspecific as to how it should be used. About 75% of questions related to mythology will include "beings with superhuman powers." Should all of these questions be tagged with the gods tag? If that's the case, then my sense is that the gods tag is worthless.
Looking through the questions tagged with the gods tag, my sense is that most of them don't need the tag. Examples:
- Are there any instances where the Egyptian gods are promiscuous? -- Just needs the Egyptian tag.
- Who is the father of the Tuatha Dé Danann? -- Just needs the Celtic tag.
There are some questions where the gods tag is used to indicate a polytheistic religion as opposed to a monotheistic religion. In those cases, my recommendation is that the monotheism and the polytheism tags be used instead.
Thoughts? Can we do something about this?
