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.

I Googled my way to StackOverflow searching for the answer to a question. StackOverflow is not the right site (my question is about finding an app, not programming one). I know there are bunches of technical StackExchange sites, but I didn't see any mentioned in the FAQ. I don't want to ask an inappropriate question and wait for somebody to migrate it, which seems to leave browsing the full SE site list. I can do that, but should we provide some hints? (I'm assuming that StackOverflow, being long-established and full of questions, gets a lot of Google traffic from people who might not even know to go search the SE directory.)

"my question is about finding an app, not programming one" - be careful here. Shopping and Recommendation questions are considered off topic on all of the Stack Exchange network, see: blog.stackoverflow.com/2010/11/qa-is-hard-lets-go-shopping and meta.stackexchange.com/questions/96870/… –  Kev Dec 7 '11 at 2:23
    
@Kev, thanks -- didn't know that. As I said, I got here via Google. (I am an SE user, but not so much on the programming/sys-admin/etc sites.) –  Monica Cellio Dec 7 '11 at 3:53

It does already, per

http://stackoverflow.com/faq#dontask

If your question is about the site itself, please don't ask it here. Visit our meta-discussion site where you can talk about things like what questions are appropriate, what tags should be used, suggest a feature, point out a bug, or generally discuss how Stack Overflow works.

If your question would be of interest to …

  • System administrators and desktop support professionals, ask on Server Fault.
  • Computer enthusiasts and power users, ask on Super User.
  • Pro webmasters, ask on Webmasters.
  • Professional programmers interested in conceptual questions about software development, ask on Programmers.

Where the latter part is defined by the valid migration paths on that particular site.

Whoops, I totally missed that "show more" link. Yeah, never mind -- already covered. –  Monica Cellio Dec 7 '11 at 3:51
