There's an infrequent but noticeable trend to use the tag on questions about dice or critical hits or the like, despite the tag being clearly labelled as specific to the d20 System:

The d20 system, developed alongside D&D 3e, forms the mechanical backbone for a variety of RPG's entirely departed from the D&D system.

If the tag itself were , I think this would quickly and easily make the mis-tagging go away.

I know it's not a major issue in the grand scheme of things, but it's been bugging me so I brought it here. (I'm also curious why the tag wasn't "-system" in the first place.)

I'm for this, in part because it's less ambiguous, but also in part because of this:

I'm also curious why the tag wasn't "-system" in the first place.

I did a brief google, and its official title is actually "d20 System". Here's a Wizards page - they don't just call it "d20".

When we create a tag for something, typically we name the tag after the official name. So aside from being clearer, would be the correct tag name.

    \$\begingroup\$ I think the abbreviated name is a hold-over from the early days of the site; people don't usually use its full name and most tags are the "most common name" (hence [D&D-4e] rather than [D&D-4th-edition] or something), so it started out as just "[d20]". Since expanding it to the more formal name presents no problems for finding or using the tag though, there's no reason we shouldn't! \$\endgroup\$ – SevenSidedDie Apr 29 '14 at 17:10

I like the idea. It's less ambiguous without being unwieldy.

As it is written, so let it be done.

Tag merged.
