The new-gm tag is only for questions about being a new GM
I'm going to quote from the tagging usage on the tag's wiki:
Use this tag when the problem is inherently about being new to GMing, not just when the problem is caused by or the result of being new to GMing.
If the problem is about some other aspect of running roleplaying games, and being new to GMing ...
People who do not play the game should not plan and decide this.
Not all games are like D&D where versions are significantly different. Call of Cthulhu, for example, has maybe 1 or 2 significant rule changes over the course of 9 editions. And especially gamers from smaller games are more desperate for information and may well want to use tags to see &...
As I sorted through the questions to the best of my knowledge, I think a distinction is needed:
the-dark-eye-4-4.1 as a joint 4/4.1 it's rather hard to sieve the 4 from the 4.1, plus the unknown recommendation one
the-dark-eye-5 for the 5
the-dark-eye for the unsortable and setting questions; possibly separate out the Player group ones where we know.
This is just the fact-gathering and question sorting, not a statement for or against the question itself. It is for the reference of those that don't know the system.
First of all, a correction: there are technically 10 distinct editions, and I am using the German nomenclature here:
DSA 1 - 1984
DSA 2 - 1988
DSA 3 - 1992
Myranor Box (DSA 3.5) - 2000 - ...
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.
Why stop at dnd-beyond?
What about dnd-adventurers-league? pathfinder-society? dnd-4e-character-builder (ok, admittedly this one is an obvious outlier)? dnd-encounters? dnd-insider? And the list goes on.
These are all tags that can only be for one specific edition of an RPG. Would it be acceptable to add a system tag if it were missing from questions with ...
The dnd-beyond tag (or otherwise describing D&DBeyond in the question) should be treated as equivalent to the OP stating "I'm playing D&D 5e"
For the simple reason that D&DBeyond is only about D&D 5e, and cannot possibly refer to any other game or edition.
It's not the same as "5e", which can be thought of by some as ...
