Renaming the touhou_(game) tag

Posted under Tags

The bulk update request #15253 has been approved by @evazion.

rename touhou_(game) -> touhou_user_interface

Touhou (game) is a very ambiguous tag that you'd assume is an umbrella tag for the games, but it's actually a tag for the UI from the games. This should have a less ambiguous name and be a general tag instead, similar to SRW battle screen and Pokemon battle. BUR won't let me set touhou user interface to a gentag since it doesn't exist yet, so it'll just have to be changed if this goes through.

Shouldn't something like this just be tagged gameplay mechanics or parody or something? No one's trying to make a soulsborne ui tag for all the times people have used or parodied their UIs.

The issue with touhou is that it's so huge that just searching touhou gameplay_mechanics or touhou parody doesn't help find this specific thing. The former has 885 results, most of which parody or reference mechanics without showing the actual UI (or they parody mechanics from OTHER games), while the latter has 13k results that are all over the place.

Even a touhou user_interface search doesn't help either, the vast majority of that search is Touhou characters with the UIs of other games or apps.

Touhou (game) is only 58 posts, while that search is only 49. Assuming everything was properly tagged, (everything in touhou (game), save for a few that shouldn't be there, should also be tagged user interface), then that search would only be just over 100 posts. I don't think it's asking that much to expect someone to have to look through just 5 pages, roughly half of which are the thing they're looking for, in order to find something that doesn't get it's own tag for 99% of other copyrights.
