We get questions every day that need to be put on hold while we wait for a new querent to specify what game/edition they're playing. As of this writing I've seen three so far today--they get quickly closed, get a comment asking about system/edition, and reopened if OP specifies.
Currently when asking a question one finds, below the text of the question, the following field:
It's clear from this message that one must provide at least one tag, and the system rejects a submission without any tag. It's also clear that the suggestions have come from our list of tags. (There's a question on meta.se about where the example tags come from; it's not clear to me the answer's very authoritative.)
Can we make one of the suggested (greyed-out) tag suggestions be a system tag? I've got to assume it would help nudge people in the right direction if submnitting a question included the subtle hint that "tell me what game you're playing" might be helpful.
Part 2: the ugly truth. It's usually D&D/PF that's the problem. Should the "suggested" tag be one of the D&Ds? Is it 5e that's the worst offender, and should that be one of the provided suggestions? I ask because
- I'm not good enough with SEDE to figure out which system tag--not that "system tag" is actually a thing in our software--tends to generate the most close-comment-edit-reopen cycles, and
- I don't know user psychology enough to know if prompting toward the "worst offender" is most helpful--perhaps a near-neighbor is better?
