I'm considering editing the to make it clear that any survival questions must be related to "the great outdoors" and not survival in urban areas, etc.

I'm thinking something along the lines of:

Questions relating to staying alive in the wilderness and learning survival techniques.

Please do not use this tag for questions about general survival that are not related to the outdoors. Surviving in town or city environments will likely be closed.

does this seem ok with everyone?

We've already decided that urbex is on topic. I'm more concerned with questions such as this:

  • I agree, that question is not on topic within the scope of the great outdoors so we should change the tag to be less general and more outdoors.

    that specific question is probably better on Skeptics - I'll ask if they want it
