    Tag suggestion: D meta

A tag for the D programming language. Of course, programming could be used until such a tag is added, but it’d mean people who don’t like D could filter out D posts, and discovery is easier for future D posts - good luck searching for D; the site silently refuses.

    This makes a lot of sense. It used to be that c was for “C family”, so I tagged D posts as c. But the last month we added c++ and objectivec tag, and it no longer makes sense to tag D posts as c.

    https://lobste.rs/s/pps3yp is an example of using c tag for D posts.

      At first, I read :D

      Language-specific tags could get a category in the tag list, then we could add a lot of these without bloating the list.

        While we’re at it, R is another language with a problematic name.

          An alternative would be “dlang” which is the kinda official term for Google searches etc.

            Go is usually called golang, but the tag is still called “Go”, so I’d argue “D” makes more sense for consistency’s sake.

            1. 1

              Same with c.

                I’d not call C clang, because that can be confused with the clang C compiler.

            D gets its own Lobsters tag… dare I dream? Truely a remarkable milestone. :-)
