This question already has an answer here:

We are a group of developers and designers at the Basel Academy of Art and Design in Switzerland.

We recently launched a new library for Adobe InDesign scripting, that brings some of the convenience that visual coders know from Processing. And we would like to introduce a tag for this called "basiljs" on stackoverflow as we would like to use this service as our main support forum. But none of us has enough reputation... :/

http://basiljs.ch/

There has been a report about us on CAN:

http://www.creativeapplications.net/scripts/basil-js-computational-and-generative-design-using-adobe-indesign/

Hope somebody can help. Don't want to wait until somebody would add the tag to an existing question, as we are about to publish our support strategy.

Thanks, Ludwig

Just a point, you call it basil.js and then ask for the basiljs tag... IF there is ever a question that NEEDS this tag then please don't create one that isn't the name of the library... –  ben is uǝq backwards Apr 27 '13 at 13:00

as we would like to use this service as our main support forum

Stack Overflow is not a forum! It is a focused Q&A site meant for getting help with programming problems.

That out of the way, you can't just request a tag creation. There has to be a question that needs the tag. I see you have mentioned this in your question, so I suppose you could ask a question about it and then add the tag to it.

However, you can't just use this service as [y]our main support forum and expect everyone to agree. This is not your website, so if too many bad questions come in with that tag it may be blacklisted.

Hi Doorknob, sorry for the confusion with the wording. We are well aware what SO is, so please do not worry about this - especially not before you have seen the quality of our questions... ;) –  Ludwig Zeller May 2 '13 at 13:26
    
Ok, so here we have a basil.js related question... I will answer it in 8h as I am not allowed to do it immediately. stackoverflow.com/questions/16339331/… It would be great if you could add the tag "basil.js" for this. Thanks –  Ludwig Zeller May 2 '13 at 13:34
