I have a question that is slighly related to this question, but rather looks into the future and the specifics of Stack Exchange. I wonder:
Where are the processes of Stack Exchange that shape the rules here and its creation written down? And (where) can they be discussed and improved upon? As mentioned above, people come along and want to change Stack Exchange.
I don't want to change Stack Exchange, but I want to gain insights. And I have questions. Actually, my issue right now is that I can't ask some questions about Stack Exchange on Stack Exchange itself or even on meta, because my issue arises out of, IMHO, incomplete information or "missing parts" (as far as I can see). But I don't want to immediately offend anyone who might have 20 hours / weeks available to devote to Stack Exchange, unlike me.
So I want to start by finding out about all these process of building and running Stack Exchange, much like how I can find out about the rules and processes of Wikipedia by diving into the depth and complexities that are layed out to the public under the "http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:..." pages. Then I want to follow the standard Stack Exchange processes and procedures to bring in my issue on this way. At least, after delving that deep I will sure be more confident as to where I can find support or help solve this (meta) issue myself and thus contribute to Stack Exchange...
PS: Sorry for being so unspecific except for my one question, but maybe you can guess what impression a casual user gets about Stack Exchange if he feels the need to react this way...on the other hand, for now it is only important for me to get just this one question answered.
