This answer (now deleted) was added to a question that is now closed because the system wasn't detailed by the querent. In it, the user first attempts a system-agnostic answer, and then gives the answer guessing that it is a D&D 5e question. Is this ok?
We have guidance about guessing the system identity in tags, but not answers as far as I can tell. Is it against policy or bad practice to attempt system-agnostic answers to questions whose system has not been specified?
In the comments to the answer in question, the user specified their reasoning for placing such an answer:
The first paragraph provides a system agnostic answer and is unlikely to be improved if the OP were to provide a specific system. The second paragraph provides an answer for the system most frequently asked about by new players and members. AsSwearingOakTree is a new user, we are admonished to be friendly and courteous, and this is the way I feel most aligns with the new CoC. I'll eat a few downvotes if it provides the best experience for a new user.
Do we feel that this kind of answer is helpful to a new user? Is it friendlier?
