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

Before I post a question on a topic, I wish to ask if it's allowed.

I am trying to register for Samsung Smartapp Developer Challenge. The support of Samsung has no clue on how registration is to happen, nor do they have any meaningful FAQ. It's a pain and I am wondering if anyone else has similar issues and how they have overcome it.

I am asking if it's ok to ask on Stack Overflow, I will not ask if it does not make sense.

No, I don't think asking how to register into any event is on topic on any Stack Exchange site. We are not some kind of "global support" service. :) – Shadow Wizard Jul 18 '12 at 10:22
are you talking about Samsung Developer Challenge ? – Lucifer Jul 18 '12 at 10:24
"Dont downvote the hell out of me here".... tempting.... ;) – Bart Jul 18 '12 at 10:26
@Lucifer yes it is the same. – Siddharth Jul 18 '12 at 11:04
Its in korean language, are you able to read the details ? – Lucifer Jul 18 '12 at 11:06
Lets not discuss it. Its not allowed, and I am not interested in getting downvoted. Thanks. – Siddharth Jul 18 '12 at 11:07

Your question is definitely off topic for Stack Overflow.

It might be OK for Web Applications, however it doesn't sound like the site is a web application in the sense that we use in our definition (an interactive site with dynamic content) which makes it off topic there as well.

However I would suggest that your first port of call should be Samsung. There must be some contact details somewhere on the site.

thanks. I wont be asking that question. – Siddharth Jul 18 '12 at 11:03

I don't believe this would be on topic on any SE site. it would qualify as Too Localized even if it were on topic, though.
