I recently asked a question about submitting my app to the app store and if I was going to charge for it would I have to set up my banking details immediately or could I set them up later.
It got closed pretty quickly but despite the great culture which makes the SO so great, nobody left a comment to tell me where I could ask this question instead of SO.
So is someone able to please tell me? I could put it on Apple.SE or Programmers.SE but I'm not sure it completely fits either of those topics and risks being closed as well.
EDIT: I would like to point out there are a whole lot of app store, apple developer connection, and itunesconnect questions which are similarly off topic to mine (if you agree that mine is off topic). So browsing the SO questions looking for an answer to MY questions would you not be led to believe that this sort of questions is indeed on-topic?
Judging by some of the comments below maybe I am not explaining my question properly, so will attempt to clarify it here now. The question I posted on SO sort of covers the "topic" of three SE sites ... StackOverflow, Programmers, Apple. These are the "kind of questions" each site encourages (from the FAQ pages of each site):
- a specific programming problem
- a software algorithm
- software tools commonly used by programmers
- matters that are unique to the programming profession
- Software engineering
- Developer testing
- Algorithm and data structure concepts
- Design patterns
- Development methodologies
- Quality assurance
- Software licensing
- Freelancing and business concerns
- Apple hardware
- Apple software
- other Apple products or services
- third-party hardware and software for Apple products
The items in bold are the topics I feel that my question meets the criteria for. So clearly (if you agree with me) my questions should be able to be asked somewhere on these three sites. Even if it is somewhat of an edge case in some peoples opinion does not necessarily mean it should simply be closed without explanation. Despite how optimistic I am that there are a lot of good users on the SE network, there are also a lot who feel that just because they have the power to close a question that they should do so, and that's what I feel has happened in this case.
EDIT: I would also like to mention that although some of you might not be convinced, I am not trying to be difficult. I would just like to be able to ask a question and not have it closed for no good reason. If you feel that I am clearly wrong and my question does not deserve to belong on one of the three relevant sites mentioned above then please say so.
