I noticed that there was no tag for Couchbase and only a small number of questions mentioning it.

So are Couchbase questions on-topic for this site - dba.SE (it which case it'd be lovely to get a tag), or do the belong on SO, Security.SE, SF, or something similar?


1 Answer 1


Couchbase is a Document-Oriented NoSQL Database according to the title of their home page: that puts it on-topic, though of course the NoSQL market is more fragmented and more cutting-edge, meaning each DB has it's own niche and the pool of Q&A here may never be big.

It does seem to be related from a technology perspective to CouchDB, though not so closely that they should share a tag. So, how do we get a tag? All we need is two open questions with the tag. If there is just one, and no follow-up within a few months, the tag will auto-delete (unless someone takes the trouble to write the tag Wiki).

So, please ask (and answer?) some good Couchbase questions on the site :)

  • So to create a tag, could I just write a (useful) question and later onwards another, and each time, simply tag them as couchbase? Or would I need a higher rep level? Apr 28, 2014 at 5:23

    You personally would need a higher level rep, but you could always flag for a mod. Once it's created, you can use it freely.

    Yep. Just as soon as I start running into them (which gives an estimate of less than a day) XD May 3, 2014 at 15:07
