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

I'm looking for specific answer to some question I think I've saw on SO, but I wasn't able to find it by myself.

Is it OK to ask people on Meta (or, maybe, on SO) for pointers?

You are looking for an existing answer on SO? – Martijn Pieters Sep 21 '12 at 15:15
try the chat room, if there happens to be an active one for your topic – prusswan Sep 21 '12 at 15:15
Well, I would say we're not a search engine, so I don't see it as on-topic for Meta. Too localized really. – Bart Sep 21 '12 at 15:19
+1 for using another alternative different than opening your browser in incognito mode and post the question regardless if there are dups (lazy people often do this to make others search the duplicates for them) – ajax333221 Sep 21 '12 at 15:43
@ajax333221 Thanks for that tip :p (Though I think SO requires registration now, right?) – Bart Sep 21 '12 at 15:47
@Bart the fact that I don't know the answer to your question makes me feel proud of myself – ajax333221 Sep 21 '12 at 15:48
@MartijnPieters yes, for existing (I believe) answer. Ok, I'll try chat room for that. Thanks! – Victor Sorokin Sep 21 '12 at 17:33
