How many level 20 PCs with Tiamat (CR 30) on their side would treat Asmodeus (CR 40) as a Hard encounter? reproduces the stat block for Tiamat in its entirety. That struck me as reproducing rather more copyrighted material than is necessary, so I hid it in an HTML comment and left a (mainsite) comment to the effect. (Revision 5)

It's been brought back out into the open. I don't want to start an edit war, but I think something like "I'm using Tiamat's stats from Rise of Tiamat" would give potential answerers enough information to go on without reproducing non-SRD material.

Should this question post that whole stat block?

No we shouldn't. It doesn't look like the restoration was deliberate though, but instead just an edit conflict while the OP was only trying to add a new paragraph. (I've noticed the automatic edit conflict detection doesn't seem to be as sensitive as it used to be.)

I've re-removed the image and added a note for where they are taking the stats from.

    \$\begingroup\$ Thanks for figuring this out--I hadn't noticed the times of the edits, just the sequence. \$\endgroup\$ – nitsua60 Oct 18 '16 at 19:31
