Geared for Children Tag

My idea is to change it to something like All Ages or Family Friendly. I think it's demeaning just to say a game is for children, but I want some way to let people know it's okay for them too when there's nothing violent or inappropriate in it.

Not a bad idea and I'd probably go ahead and just change it, unfortunately there's currently 292 Geared for Children stories and you can't just change the title of the tag. What would happen is the tag would be deleted and then all 292 stories would have to manually get labeled Family Friendly/All Ages.

Though I'm likely to just go ahead and do it anyway and just bother to relabel Imagination (And maybe a few of the others I actually remember have the Children's tag) with the new tag.

I'm fine with changing it. I went ahead and grabbed a list of everything the tag pulled up so I can go in later to start adding the new one.

(Grabbed a list of everything rated 3 or over that is. Don't care about the rest.)

Well I don't know about 'demeaning', but I always thought the 'Geared for' phrasing was strange. We got rid of Geared for Extremists and that was probably a good move too.

I guess something like Family Friendly is more immediately recognizeable, and it does actually imply a difference between 'just for kids' and 'appropriate for everyone' when used to describe a movie.

Yeah let's go with Family Friendly. I like the alliteration and it's less cumbersome.
