I see there isn't a tag for some sports like darts, which probably wouldn't be as popular as football, NFL etc but there should really be tags if someone wants to ask a question related to that sport as it is quite a big sport in Britain.

    I just wanted to point out that since you have more than 150 reputation points, you can create tags. So if you ask a question about some particular sport, you can create a tag for that sport (if you consider such tag to be useful).

  • Also from what I have seen, I would say that the tag (international-sports) is used for various less-known sports. (In cases when the particular sport does not seem to be important enough to have its own tag.)

  • @Martin I have seen international-sports used more as a catch-all when asking about multiple sports or identification of an unknown sport...not necessarily for "various less-known sports."

  • @edmastermind29 I meant for example questions like this one or this one, which are identify-this-sport question and they are tagged using this tag.

  • @Martin Which is identification of an unknown sport (to which I see your point of "various less-known sports," but had they known what the sport is, it would be tagged as such)...this isn't the majority usage however. That's all I'm saying.

Popularity shouldn't be a precursor in creating tags. If someone wants to ask a question on darts, or a lesser-known sport, a flag is raised, a meta post (like yours) is made, or the tag is created.

The reason there isn't a tag for "darts" is because no question has been asked about darts. See this for more information:

We do not and cannot proactively add tags to the site. Tags are only created when someone adds them to a question.

  • FYI, there is now a tag for darts.
