There were questions tagged "dd-essentials." We had determined that D&D should be abbreviated "dnd", and also I think it's worth saying it's D&D 4.0 Essentials since there well may be a D&D 5.0 Essentials in 2020. Go vote on my tag synonyms if you agree, I think it should be changed to "dnd4.0-essentials" and I've retagged the existing questions to that end.

Changing the dd to dnd is definitely the way to go. I'm not so sure about the 4.0, though... The product's name is "D&D Essentials", so dnd-essentials or dnd-essentials4.0 would be a more discoverable tag I think.

On the other hand, dnd4.0-essentials is more filterable... shrug

"Yea" for changing it to [dnd-essentials]. That just looks like an oversight.

"Nay" for trying to read the minds of future Wizards development teams. We should tag it what it's called, and worry about differentiating it from non-D&D4e Essentials if and when such a thing exists. If it ever matters, we can set up a quick synonym then to fix things up.

  • \$\begingroup\$ The Player's Handbook doesn't have a "4.0" on the cover anywhere and WotC refers to it as just "Dungeons & Dragons" but we know that's what it is and that's what we tag it. We know this is D&D 4.0 Essentials and so that's what it should be tagged. \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ @mxyzplk Good point on the core line not including 4th Edition in it. I still think the tag looks a bit better with the 4.0 at the end, though (like the rest of the D&D tags). \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ We would then be the only place online that called it "D&D 4.0 Essentials". That doesn't seem right. Why don't we start calling the Holmes boxed set "D&D 2nd Edition" too? \$\endgroup\$ Sep 22 '10 at 15:46
