I'm starting to explore the topic of Range Variables and want to know if I should create the tag, and tag the questions appropriately.

  • You'd have to look really hard to tag questions appropriately with this. If the problem is specifically dealing with those range variables, then maybe, but generally, I don't think this is a good idea as most questions aren't going to be around range variables, but will involve them in some way.

I disagree. C# range variables are, near as I can tell, simply a part of the language. I don't believe there should be a unique tag for keywords or other basic elements of a particular language.

I know that there are some tags for specific language keywords already, such as [volatile], which have been allowed to survive. If there were a rule to not have tags for language features, perhaps there would be some exceptions in special cases.

Then again, I don't think so. The C++ keyword volatile is complex, misunderstood and the subject of frequent debate, but tagging questions with [volatile] doesn't really help anybody searching for information about volatile, nor does it help front-page contributors to know which questions to read any more than a thoughtful subject would.
