Lo and behold, we have a tag! I spotted it on this hypothetical question but it's on three questions total.

Hypothetical questions can sometimes be asked here if the answer can be based solidly or at least mostly in fact, but should there be a tag for this?

I noticed that Defining requirements for hypothetical-invention questions is status-declined.


This has been discussed extensively before, see Would a “Speculation” tag be useful?, and the linked questions and discussions.

The preferred tag, in the cases where the question is on topic is . It was selected over and . is even more ambiguous than the two.

We don't want this tag.
