The forum needs a tag for Windows 2019 Server!

The question doesn't make an explicit case for the new tag, beyond continuing the line of existing Windows Server version tags. So, this seems like a good time to look at the utility of the whole ...

Do we need a special vendor-neutral tag for columnar databases (tables)?

Tag suggestion: mtime-row

There are a number of tags in DBA.SE that I don't fully understand, but which are related either to one or the other RDBMS, as they are part of that specific RDBMS or are common DBA l33t 5p3@k. ...

Should a newly-created tag be propagated to existing questions?

Adding a Elassandra tag

I'm fine with having the new product / new tag here. It may be a while until network effects of questions and expertise accumulates, of course. Every other tag has had its first question at some point....

PostgreSQL RULE tag?

I doubt we have that many questions on it, but I don't see what damage that tag does. Normally you should be using triggers instead. If you want to add that tag, I say go for it. I don't think it ...
