Don’t make adnd another umbrella tag—we don’t need another. dungeons-and-dragons handles that situation just fine, just like it does for questions across WotC-era D&D editions. There doesn’t seem to be a lot of clamoring for that distinction. Moreover, adnd-1e already exists as a synonym of adnd, and breaking that synonym relationship will just cause ...

Yes, rename it! But we don’t want the edition-less synonym confusing things. pathfinder should be renamed but without leaving it as a synonym. We should just not have a Pathfinder tag without an edition marker. All that keeping a synonym pathfinder→pathfinder-1e would do is give us a bunch of new 2e questions accidentally tagged 1e as well, which we would ...

Yes, we should. To avoid confusion on the part of both question askers and question answerers. The use of edition tags has generally been very helpful for this site.

Yes, the arcane-focus tag should be renamed to spellcasting-focus The arcane-focus tag seems to be narrowly scoped to focus (heh) on one particular type of spellcasting focus that exists in at least some versions of D&D and Pathfinder. However, there doesn't seem to be a particular need for such a specific distinction between arcane focuses and other ...

The change has been made I left this for a few days to see if there were any arguments against it. There haven't been any, reasonable or otherwise so I didn't see the point in waiting any longer. I have now updated the tag. You can find the 11 effected questions under the new tag masks-a-new-generation.

Yes, it should be renamed. Without checking, and given the context of RPGs, I would definitely think "breath weapons!" before thinking "breathing" on reading a "breath" tag. Using "breathing" instead effectively removes any ambiguity without compromising the meaning or readability.

In this specific case, yes. We don't really care about a RPG.SE convention for edition tags. We care about what players of that game use and find natural and would be searching on and so on. So if WFRP players tended to refer to it as "WFRP 4" that would be the appropriate tag. However, on a cursory Google Trends and other google check, WFRP 4e is a much ...

No Especially in infrequently used tags, more general is better. "Well my question isn't quite about the astral plane it's about..." is the immediate issue from the next question about astral phenomena. And then we have a fistful of astral tags all running the risk of deletion because they don't have enough use. It is fit for use right now. "...

Yes, with a caveat: We should use a similar system to how we organize the D&D tags. We would need to rename the existing pathfinder tag to pathfinder-1e, as proposed, but create a new, generic pathfinder tag for questions about the topic of Pathfinder that do not necessarily pertain to a particular edition, exactly how the dungeons-and-dragons tag is ...

Yes, we should rename it. We are already using it this way, and we should merge it with holy-symbol. Both will be useful synonyms. Using "arcane focus" and "holy symbol" as synonyms keeps current searchability and functionality and expands it.

Does the umbrella tag adnd materially help any question? Sure, it has a tag description clarifying that it means 1e, if someone bothers to look, but how common is that? It seems far more straightforward to convert adnd to adnd-1e and obliterate adnd, discarding the synonym. Questions that honestly concern both adnd-1e and adnd-2e (but not the all-...
