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 dnd-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?
