# Creating a new tag for Julia language

I wanted to create a new tag for Julia language, which already exists in Stack Overflow. But, as I do not have a question in order to create a tag, I wanted to know how do I do it.

Update: So, there seems to be a question on Julia, on which I have added the tag and thus, created it. (https://stats.stackexchange.com/tags/julia-lang/info)

• Leaving aside the specifics of this case; as a general principle, there's really no need to create tags before you have any questions to apply them to. Aug 25 '15 at 13:08
• Yeah, makes sense. Seems like there is already a tag named julia (thanks for the edit.) on this question: stats.stackexchange.com/questions/25672/… But, do you think it should be julia-lang instead of julia (the reverse remap of the existing one)? Aug 25 '15 at 14:02
• We have r (the most popular tag on the site), matlab, sas, spss, c++, c# etc ... so the julia tag fits with those while julia-lang does not. [In fact until you made julia-lang, there was not even a single language-name tag with -lang in it. It's probably best to avoid breaking the local convention unless there's some level of agreement here on meta.] Aug 25 '15 at 23:15
• @Glen_b, thanks for clarifying. Totally agree with you. And the fact that unnecessarily creating tags when there is no demand is also a very sensible point. Aug 26 '15 at 2:35
