The tag doesn't have a hyphen in the middle, as in: . Since introductoryprogramming is only 23 characters, introductory-programming has 24 characters and should hence be allowed as a tag name (the maximal length is 25 characters).

Can a hyphen be placed in the tag? I could do it with manual retagging, but the tag has already 7 questions, so that doesn't seem the best thing to do right now.

  • $\begingroup$ I think retagging is the only way at this point. There isn't an automated system for this that I know of. $\endgroup$

I like the idea, but maybe it should be to match with the idea which was voted up on the question about age range tags.

  • $\begingroup$ Yes. This makes it useful for non-programming courses as well. $\endgroup$
