In a different discussion @EveryBitHelps wondered whether transformation would be a good tag to add to a question, which made me realize that this tag exists.
The tag has neither a tag wiki excerpt nor a full tag wiki. There are only two questions, one of them which is closed. Both seem to be about a sort of "magical" transformation:
- I have been drinking a potion to stop a transformation. One day, I stopped drinking the potion. How would the transformation take place? is asking about a dragon-human hybrid that stops taking some kind of hormone suppressor and wonders how the transformation to the original half-dragon would look like
- Adjusting from Quadruped to Biped wonders about how a creature would adapt that was suddenly transformed from having four legs to only having two legs
To me it looks like both questions could just as well do without the tag or maybe with the shapeshifters tag. The idea behind the tag seems to be similar to that of shapeshifters. The transformations seem to be involuntarily, but the shapeshifters tag already includes this (emphasis mine):
Shape-shifters can completely change their body form. There tend to be 2 kinds:
Sci-fi shape-shifters tend to keep the same mass and similar size, along the line of advanced octopuses. Fantasy shifters have fewer restraints. Were-wolves are a common example: shifting from 80-pound wolf to 180-pound human to 300+-pound werewolf.
The transformations may be voluntary or involuntary.
This tag is for questions related to the feasibility and capabilities of these beings.
Do we need the tag transformation or do we want to burninate it?
