Is there a way to get a list that combines two or more tags without all of the questions having to be tagged with both tags? For example, on stack overflow i tend to look at the sql-server tag a lot, but not all sql server questions get that tag. What i'd really like is a list of unique questions tagged with sql-server, sql-server-2005or sql-server-2008. Is there a way to do this? If not, can we implement a way to do this?
There is a data.SE query to do this for two tags:
which can be forked to work for three and base results on a specific state.
In many cases, a tag wildcard will do what you want. For your given example,
[sql-server*] is the way to go; the
* expands to all tags that fit that pattern.
