I noticed that the tag for Original D&D is "odd." Will people realize that this is for OD&D? Will there be confusion with odd/strange?

I think this another point in favor of retagging the D&D-related things as "dnd" and so on.

We make sure there's useful information in the tag wiki! [odd] has a good one, which is nice.

  • \$\begingroup\$ The odnd tag has no wiki, would you like to help us create it? \$\endgroup\$ – anon186 Sep 9 '10 at 18:43
  • \$\begingroup\$ Um, that really sucks. We lost the odd wiki info when we created the synonym. It was pretty good, too. :( \$\endgroup\$ – Bryant Sep 9 '10 at 19:00

When it's unclear what the meaning of the tag is, but there's one clearly superior use, I think the wiki is enough. But there are systems named "Adventure!" "Warlord," "Wushu," "Bushido," "Wushu," and "Wild Talent," all of which could conceivably be used as tags for other things. "-" is already in use to combine two words into an atomic tag, and I think that should be the sole use for "-". When or if it becomes necessary, I think "." should be used to append disambiguations. [adventure.system] or [adventure.game] is still going to be confusing, but at least there would be an underlying logic capable of being discovered and explained.

  • \$\begingroup\$ hybrid tags should not be used. I understand the problem you are pointing out but that is not the solution. \$\endgroup\$ – mxyzplk Sep 10 '10 at 1:20
  • \$\begingroup\$ Does a solution exist? \$\endgroup\$ – kodi Sep 10 '10 at 15:04
  • \$\begingroup\$ Oh, wait, more questions: (1) Why should hybrid tags not be used? (2) What are hybrid tags? (3) Do you consider [dice-notation] or [system-recommendation] hybrid tags? \$\endgroup\$ – kodi Sep 10 '10 at 17:22
