What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 134 Stack Exchange communities.

Embarcadero Technologies released a new version of RadPHP with a new name, HTML5 Builder. But there is currently no tag in StackOverflow for the new product name.

Users are probably going to workaround the issue by combining existing tags, which might leave to things like:

I think it would be better to provide a tag html5builder for questions regarding this product, questions that might have nothing to do, for example, with HTML5.

Why on earth would questions that have nothing to do with html5 be tagged with html5builder? –  Lix Sep 24 '12 at 8:38
@Lix Why on earth would questions that have nothing to do with C++ be tagged with c++builder? –  Yannis Sep 24 '12 at 8:40
@yan - I didn't notice the spelling mistake in the link... I thought you were making up tag names... x_x –  Lix Sep 24 '12 at 8:50
@Lix Yeah, I ninja edited that ;) –  Yannis Sep 24 '12 at 8:51
HTML5 Builder is an IDE, so questions about the interface will, for example, have nothing to do with the HTML5 programming language. Same goes for questions about PHP, CSS, JavaScript, jQuery and other technologies you can use with HTML5 Builder. –  Gallaecio Sep 24 '12 at 8:51
@Gallaecio Could you please unaccept my answer? I'm agreeing with you that the tag is appropriate, and giving a few more details about why that is, but I don't have 1500 rep on Stack Overflow, thus can't create the tag and can't resolve the issue you bring up. Keep the "accepted mark" for whoever comes along and actually creates the tag ;) –  Yannis Sep 24 '12 at 8:55
I don't really like the fact that a tag would be created with an ambiguous meaning. If my latest PHP project was called iOS7, I think people would raise some eyebrows when I create that tag... –  Lix Sep 24 '12 at 8:55
@Lix Well the IDE is not call HTML5, I think [html5builder] is not really that ambiguous. I wouldn't mind if we adopted a "company-product" policy for tags, something like [embarcadero-html5builder], but that would lead to some very long tags... –  Yannis Sep 24 '12 at 8:57
Perhaps html5builder-ide would be more appropriate... –  Lix Sep 24 '12 at 8:58
@Lix That could work as well... But I still don't think that [html5builder] is ambiguous, if you want ambiguous, how about we talk crap? (spoiler: Change Risk Analysis and Predictions) –  Yannis Sep 24 '12 at 9:02
I guess my "complaint" should be directed at the people who chose the name... –  Lix Sep 24 '12 at 9:04
Did somebody just call HTML5 a programming language? –  BoltClock's a Unicorn Sep 24 '12 at 9:43
@BoltClock'saUnicorn Well if you evil mods didn't close questions like this one, perhaps people wouldn't be making such mistakes... ;P –  Yannis Sep 24 '12 at 10:02

Given that we have tags for:

...and almost every other development tool known to man, I think [html5builder] would be appropriate.

Since there's already one question that could use the tag, could someone with 1500 rep create it please? The question is horribly mistagged, and probably will be closed as Not a Real Question if the OP doesn't clear it up a bit, but right now it's there, open, and about HTML5 Builder.

Also please note that HTML5 Builder is the name Embarcadero chose for the product, it's not a name for a specific version of the product.


kiamlaluno went ahead and created the tag. Feel free to use it if you find other questions about HTML5 Builder, and please remove any pointless tags they might have.
