I recently submitted the following question (yes it was a question), which has obviously been closed.
This is what should be a perfect question. How do I take an application I have and make it available on the web.
Ideally, someone would answer with what would have to be done, and I would be on my way.
Perhaps it wasn't perfectly worded as some of the responses were far more afield than my question. And, maybe those comments derailed the reviewers as well. But with clarification there have also been good answers.
David Hefferin said it was not a web service but a web app. Okay, and even though I used web and service in the same sentence, I never said web service either. Still, we were getting there.
Instead it seems stackoverflow is looking for Little Questions, Techie Questions, that can be answered simply. This is a concept or direction question by someone who is not a web app or web service developer. I can take it forward pointed in the right direction - which would really help. Or not, if this can't be done, which almost seems the general concensus. But that at least would be an answer.
I still need an answer. Perhaps it's not an answer I can get on Stack Overflow, but it is an answer to a real question. A great question. I'll get it somewhere. But closing this Question was misguided.
