Leetcode is a very popular website for programming challenges. I would request that a new tag be created, , that can focus on these specific types of questions.

There has been an influx of Leetcode questions recently, that I have noticed, and this thought had crossed my mind.

I believe that, while is a good tag, a tag created specifically for Letcode can help reviewers understand more about where the question originated from.

Forgive my bluntness, but absolutely not.

Today it's leetcode, yesterday it was hackerrank and tomorrow it might be who-knows-what. But what value does it add to know that by the tags? Are there leetcode experts with different experience than hackerrank experts?

Don't get me wrong: I'm in favour of questions stating where the problem came from. But that's already done and I don't see the added benefit of using tags for this. Keep in mind there's only room for 5 tags per question and enough questions are already at maximum usage.

Tags connect experts with questions they will be able to answer. But what is going to add that doesn't do already?

We used to do this. for example, for questions from exercism.io. Do note that it's actually pointing towards now.
