User BBz removed the beginner tag from 8 questions yesterday, including 3 of mine. I don't agree with at least some of these tag removals, but on the other hand the definition of the tag isn't all that clear:
Someone who is new to a particular game and has seldom, if ever, played it before.
From my perspective, if I've played a simple game less than 5 times or less than a few hours, I'm a beginner. If I've played a really complex game for less than a few hundred hours (i.e. Bridge, Chess, Go), I'm a beginner. According to that definition, there are some basics of the game I still probably don't yet know. For example as a beginner I sure wish I had been given the following advice on Bridge:
As a beginner, it is really useful for me to see efficient learning method discussion like this, as well as basic strategies. Being able to pick out all the "beginner" questions for bridge and read through them (if you've spent less than a couple hundred hours playing Bridge) could be really useful for a beginner, IMO.
What do people think this beginner tag be used for?
