Are sliding window problems considered two-pointer problems? I mean... sliding window technically utilizes two pointers...

The reason why I was asking this was because I solved a problem with the sliding window technique and was wondering where the two-pointers tag come from.

Tags are just assigned by people who have solved the problem, it's not very rigorous. A lot of problems are marked as "greedy" because they have some small greedy component even though the problem isn't really "greedy". And the "constructive algorithms" tag doesn't really mean anything.

So yeah, probably someone thought that it was kinda like two pointers and added that tag.

    I have heard that tag edit access is given to the problem setters, and people above certain rating. Is that true?

      Yes that's true. As I know your max rating should be >= 1900 to be able to edit the tags.
