Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 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

My question initially was going to be where to post a general question about stack exchange (namely, where to post a question on a particular topic). Then I found this post (and subsequently just found the same thing addressed in the FAQ), so I decided to post here.

SuperUser seems to be the closest website but I wasnt sure if my topic was ok. It has to do with software (Microsoft Live Meeting crashing when sharing out a Windows 7 VM) but I wanted to make sure since I didnt find any others like that in a quick search of the site and questions about "software" (via the site FAQ) seems really broad. Also, more candidly I'm afraid of being rebuked/policed by somebody who wants to up their repuation/points/score/counts in this game, so I figured maybe I should ask if this place is appropriate to ask my question before I ask my question. Unfortunately you need 5 reputation to post on that meta, but none on this one and that's why I'm posting here (I'm sure somebody can link me to a post as to why that is as well).

The second part to my question is whether I should even post my "question" to begin with. SO has been an invaluable resource to me so I like to add to the vast repository of information on SE. Recently I was having a problem (with Live Meeting crashing) for which I couldnt find a solution online. I found the solution myself (or rather I found the root cause and remedied it). I would like to tell the world (internet) my problem and how I fixed it. So I dont have a question, I have a solution. I could put it on a blog, but I dont blog. I could put it in the form of a question, and then answer my own question (which is what I plan to do) but I feel there should be some place where I can just post solution to problems that you find on your own. Stack Exchange doesnt appear to be it, but maybe somebody can offer an alternative?

You, sir, are a fool and a charlatan! Take yourself away, immediately! ... Now that I've rebuked and policed you, how long do I have to wait until my reputation/points/score/counts increase in the game? – Won't Jun 20 '12 at 20:25

Ask the question on SuperUser, then answer it yourself. This is all fine and good.

The only problem you might get with your question is that it could be seen as "too localized". Program crashes are caused by problems with an individual's setup about as much as known issues. I'm guessing. Maybe.

If someone (or many someones) close your question as too localized, your ego should be able to handle it. If not, please exit the Internet at the nearest point of egress.
