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 ...

TL;DR: This is a nice question and has useful answers but it's an unbounded list/poll question with clarity issues. It should get a historical lock because it's still a useful reference despite not being a great fit for the Stack. What's this question about, anyway? There's a conflict between the title question and the body question. There's a question in ...

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, 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 ...

You can find all links on the site currently pointing to angrydm.com (the old website now used by a malicious domain squatter) by typing url:"angrydm.com" into the search bar. Here's the list. I don't know that there's an easy way to fix these links (the links on the new site don't follow the exact same format) - or to intentionally break them to avoid ...

Tag Synonyms How do I propose or vote on tag synonyms? Users with this privilege and a total answer score (total upvotes minus total downvotes) of 5 or more on the tag, can suggest tag synonyms. Users with a total answer score of 5 or more on the tag, can vote for tag synonyms. They're a thing and they can be created by higher-rep users, and they do what ...

Tool questions are no longer on-topic Per this question, tool questions were deemed to be off-topic Are tool recommendation questions on topic? As such a question about LARP Apps no longer would be a valid question to ask on the site, hence the historical lock. I agree it should be deleted. I agree that the question as-is should probably be removed ...

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.

This seems like a great case for merging. The questions are identical. The answers are high quality and will make sense when put together in the same spot. The moderation team's discussed it internally and we agree a merge is appropriate. We're going to hold off for a few days in case there's something we missed that means we shouldn't merge these. Merging'...

It can probably go. After recommendation requests were (re)made off-topic, it was standard operating procedure to close and lock them when they were bumped or otherwise discovered in the course of using the site. We didn’t want old off-topic posts showing up on the front page every time someone corrected a typo, but we also didn’t want to actively go hunt ...

The mod team is on board with the arguments people have made here for deleting the question. We've also verified the question is in fact taking up a priority SEO spot despite the app being defunct. The question has been deleted now.

The psychology tag is honestly probably not that useful to us and should be burninated. It originated with a question actually asking about the practice of psychological therapy. That question was based on some significant misinformation. Arguably it's actually completely off topic: answering it takes knowledge about the practice of psychological therapy, ...

Questions 1 and 2 are identical Question 1, "Can you attack with more than one weapon when using Extra Attack?" asks: When one uses the Extra Attack class feature, must it be done with only one weapon? Question 2, "Can you attack with different weapons using Extra Attack?" asks: Assuming I am holding two different weapons, [...] can I attack once ...

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 ...

Update: Done! Background This looks like a good candidate for blacklisting. It's the sort of tag a person might reasonably assume was useful, but doesn't really add anything to question. At 102 questions, removing the tag is right on the edge of being reasonable to do manually. Looking at the discussion here, I think I can safely eliminate the tag from ...

Close #3 as a duplicate of #1, and fix the dupe target of #2 It looks like #1 and #2 are identical to each other, and one of them should indeed be marked as a duplicate of the other (as you note). However, the two questions are not quite the same as #3, which is a more specific subset of the other two; whereas #1 and #2 present the general question of taking ...

I agree, and I've added Can I cast a Warlock spell with another (higher) spell slot from a different multiclass? as a dupe target to: Warlock and Sorcerer Multiclass Casting With An Enhanced Effect D&D 5e Warlock Multiclass - Casting Warlock Spells Using Other Class Spell Slots Warlocks using spell slots with multiclassing Paladin/Warlock sharing spell ...

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-...
