What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 131 Stack Exchange communities.

On Stack Overflow, there are quite a few questions, such as http://stackoverflow.com/questions/7658399/adding-checked-products-to-a-custom-php-basket, where the OP wants you to implement things for him, without really asking a question.

So, when you face this problem, there are 2 solutions:

  • Do the work yourself, and add a specific question if you happen to have one, like Pekka suggested:

    I suggest you try for yourself [implement the feature / fix the problem] and come back if you have specific, answerable questions

  • Go to a website designed for this purpose.

Do you know if such a website exists?

If such a website existed I would not send the person there, it is just encouraging the behavoir. –  slugster Oct 6 '11 at 10:58
    
For this question, you have a much higher change to get a satisfying answer on SO, so I understand that the OP did that. I'm looking for a website about programming related questions, and where you expect decent answers. That might not exist tough. –  pinouchon Oct 6 '11 at 11:00

Yes, Get/Rent-A-Coder are dealing with these questions. –  Time Traveling Bobby Oct 6 '11 at 11:38

I don't think any forum, group or community would entertain such a question unless a monetary transaction was offered. Sometimes, if I can honestly tell that the OP is just completely and utterly stuck at the beginning despite effort, I'll provide a bit of a 'wire frame'. But, that's the extent of it. –  Tim Post Oct 6 '11 at 11:42

There is no SE site for that, and I can't imagine that there ever will be one. A Q&A site where people answer questions without any monetary compensation can't work if the ones asking spend pretty much no effort on their problem and the answerers are expected to do the whole work for free.

If you want someone to do the whole work for you, you just need to hire someone and pay them to do that.
