Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

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.
