I don't have very strong feelings about this, but on balance I think it is OK to create this tag. Some factors that I considered before making that statement: We did have an ola-hallengren tag before, but as I recall it was only applied to a very small number of questions. It was auto-deleted when those questions were de-tagged, for whatever reason. I don'...

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 hierarchy. The FAQ describes the reasons for tagging questions: Tags connect experts with questions they will be able to answer. Tags are for sorting your ...

Yes All databases open-source and proprietary with more than one question should have their own tag and tag-wiki.

If I create a new tag for a product which seems relevant to the site (e.g., talend), should I run a search and add the tag to existing questions? Yes, this is welcome but please take your time and add as much value as you can at each stage of the process: Avoid making too many tag edits in a short period of time. Tag edits bump questions to the top of the ...

As I mentioned in chat, ideally you would have asked the community for feedback on this new tag before creating it, and new tags should come with usage guidance at a minimum: @EvanCarroll What the heck does mtime-row mean? If you're going to create a tag, at least add some usage guidance and maybe a wiki. Before you get 2k privileges, you might consider ...

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. However, with your suggestion for the new tag mtime-row I guess the only person that would understand the tag would be yourself, as you defined the meaning of the ...

I commend your efforts, but they're misguided. Whilst the concept translates to the RDBMS world, the terminology doesn't crossover from filesystem to databases in this instance. The audit tag and its synonyms should probably be used.

Yes I think that's an ideal case. More important though would be to contribute to the tag wiki at least a synopsis of what the product or service or company does. But, yes it's certainly a valid contribution either way.

Having asked some a question about it recently, I say yes but I don't have the required rep.

I vote Yes, there should probably be one for citus too

No Compound tags should be discouraged. The only thing a compound tag does is waste a slot better suited for something that adds a descriptive quality. Tags aren't categories. They should be atomic. That's why you can search for [spatial] [oracle]

Yes, this makes sense. Although InnoDB Cluster is still relatively new, as it was released only a year ago (see MySQL InnoDB Cluster GA is Available Now!), there are several examples of questions here on DBA.SE that could have been tagged with mysql-innodb-cluster: MySQL InnoDB cluster pricing how to resolve innodb cluster conflict Is InnoDB Cluster a ...

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 applies to the question of yours that I just answered though.
