Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

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
