Description  Decommissioned the 'tag' game from the Shrieking Siren, along with the 'it' aura you got during it.
Reason  The entire mechanism was entirely pointless; it wasn't a game for people to actually enjoy playing because it was just skill checks and all it did while you had it was spam the hell out of you and everyone around you. This lead to it mostly ending up on incarnos bots (and thus never moving anywhere). TL;DR it sucked, fight me
Result  no more tag, no more it

Description  the game of tag has been updated in such a way where players can elect to not participate in the game by going to Bupu and saying "i no longer wish to play tag". take note that this cannot be undone and is on a per-character basis. we'll look into making it so that if you're "it" for over some amount of time (probably an hour) then the object spawned for the game returns back to Bupu.
Reason  as developers we should exert caution and be somewhat hesitant to just blindly go around and remove things from the game just because their old or feel a bit silly. instead we should try to improve upon them and modernize as much as we can where possible over taking the easy route of "just delete the thing because i dont like how it works".
Result  tag exists again, players can opt-out of tag.
