Several questions are related to first layer calibration or issues: I found 43 of them with "first layer" in the title alone, 150 with "first layer" anywhere (no duplicates).

I propose adding a "first-layer" tag to more easily retrieve said questions.

I already applied it to my latest question without thinking about it, but I can remove it if desired.

    $\begingroup$ I think it is closely related to build plate adhesion, but a first layer tag might be a good idea. Need to think it over. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Is there some problem that the first layer can have that others can't - other than bed adhesion? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ A problem I see is that many issues (like bed not level, or zero position off) are usually noticed on the first layer, but they're overall setup problems, not first layer problems. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @Davo when the question is asked, it's not yet know which is the cause. But I see that the tag is not so needed as I thought. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @FarO I'm not against the tag, I'm just trying to understand the category of problems for which this would be better than some other tag (like adhesion or bed-leveling. If such cases exist, then I'm all for this new tag. $\endgroup$

I think the tag should be used instead.

  • $\begingroup$ Can you delete the tag "first-layer"? I have no rights for that. The question which had that tag were in fact all about bed leveling or adhesion, I edited them (but in fact they already had the correct tags). $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @FarO not a single one with first-layer exists. The tag will die itself in a couple days. $\endgroup$

Yes, I support this idea. A tag would be useful.
