I'm planning on asking a question.

Now, while I plan to put PostgreSQL as the "major" server for the question, there is no reason (and I am interested) that replies for other servers couldn't be either helpful, interesting, useful... or all of the above.

So, I'm just wondering if there'd be any demand at all for having an all-servers tag for questions which fall into this category?


No, because no one will ever look for all-servers tag.

Just drop it entirely. It's assumed if you don't specify a specific RDBMS that it's applicable to all of them. But that's really not useful, so it seems likely you'll be forced to specify, and I'm cool with that.

Basically you're either asking about

  • A specific RDBMS product
  • The SQL Spec.

I can't see a question applying to every RDBMS product being useful.

  • The all-servers tag would just as a hint that it's not just the "major server". I would be interested in alternative approaches taken by other RDBMS - to see if there are features there that I might be interested in - I know it's kinda vague/non-specifice, but I don't think that it's necessarily possible to nail every question down to one particular server and that one only. I'm hoping my question will provoke some open-ended debate about the topic (which IMHO is of interest to the group), while at the same time remaining strictly technical. – Vérace Feb 28 '20 at 4:54
  • Anyway, it's just a thought on my part - I can always express these sentiments at the beginning of the question anyway - thanks for your input! – Vérace Feb 28 '20 at 4:54
