Hi,

Should we add the tag "object-database"?

Reason? There are two broad types of databases: relational databases, and object databases. I think a distinguishing tag would make sense on a number of levels.

Personally, I would very much prefer specific tags for the database in use, rather than general tags for the type of database. If your question is just about databases in general, you probably don't know or need to make the distinction between relational and object databases. –  Cody Gray Feb 26 '11 at 12:23
    
There are also flat file databases out there as well - en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flat_file_database - which are these days things like csv files, but used to compete with relational database. –  amelvin Feb 26 '11 at 13:52

We already have object-oriented-database with 11 questions and object-datbase with 32.

Oooooh. When I typed in "object-", the dropdown list only gives 5 answers - and "object-database" was not in the list. Suggest adding a little arrow to scroll through the list of suggestions, like Google offers? –  Contango Feb 26 '11 at 12:43
