Quick background info: I have been actively programming in C# and Clarion for two years now. When I search about how to do things, SO is almost always the first link for C#. There are currently 356,163 active C# questions on SO. However, when I search for Clarion, I never come up with SO. There are currently only 19 active questions for Clarion. This leads me to my question:
Should people ask questions regarding uncommon languages on SO even though they probably will go unanswered?
I see two ways of thinking about this:
- Pro: It will add traffic to SO and continue to make it an incredible resource.
- Con: It could be considered spam and will only add clutter to the site. It's better to use other language-specific sites which already have lots of active members.
I have a lot of questions about Clarion and want to make SO a better resource, so should I ask my questions here even if they will probably go unanswered? Should I ask them and then answer them myself if and when I find an answer?
