My question was about the best strategy to solve a technical problem:
It was closed as off-topic because the answer is subjective: I was looking for suggestions, and as such, there is no one "right" answer. However, I feel that the question has merits:
- I think there is a solution out there that will solve my problem
- It's probably solvable by creating a Google Chrome Extension
- I'd wager that it's a common problem, and other people will likely benefit from the solution
So that being said, is there a StackExchange site that I could move my question to, where it would not be off-topic? (e.g. SuperUser or WebApps) Or, failing that, is there a way I could rephrase it so that it's on-topic?
I could have been more specific; e.g. I could have asked how website login timeouts work, or how to GET/POST to a site in the background on an automated interval via a GCE. But I didn't want to limit the solution by assuming this was the best path to solve the problem.
Thanks in advance for your feedback; some times knowing how to ask the right question is 50% of the problem.
