I have a time related problem that I am trying to solve so was looking through the various time related tags and descriptions. I found them rather contradictory and several aspects of them circular/redundant. To be fair the main tag was last edited 3 years ago.
- I'm not sure on the meta tag process. So this question, that was prompted by one tag, may need to be split up for each issue.
The excerpt for time states:
For questions about the passage or measurement of time or how it can be affected, including traveling back and forth in it.
With the more detailed description stating:
This tag is for questions about the effects of time on a civilization, or vice-versa. If the question involves space as well - typically as the result of relativistic effects - use the space-time tag.
Also consider the time-travel tag, if time travel is involved.
thirdly, the space-time description is actually blank and has 0 tagged questions. It is also mentioned in space but I think it can either be removed or be made a synonym for spacetime-dimensions which has 72 questions?
Concerning dimensions of space and time, whether our 3-space + 1-time or other dimensions.
This tag should be used in questions concerning various dimensions of space and time, where interaction between different space-time dimensions occurs, space-time dimensions other than 3+1 are involved, or the question concerns the space-time dimensions themselves
I'm not sure if a further new tag should be created for [time-manipulation] for questions about non-standard time ie speeding up/slowing down/stopping/time-bubbles etc without actually time-travelling or reaching faster-than-light speeds, or if this would actually fall under the scope of the already existing spacetime-dimensions
