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

I can't seem to find info on installing a Swedish language package on my machine. The language is not listed on their website and the hits on Google I got led nowhere (or, rather, to the said page).

Where can I ask such a question (within the realm of Stack Exchange)?

Super User seems to be the place for this question. If it's well written. – George Stocker Sep 27 '12 at 14:20
@GeorgeStocker Would you say that the formulation above constitutes a well written question? Also, the remark I made as a comment to the other reply - isn't it a bit too simple question to be posted there? – Konrad Viltersten Sep 27 '12 at 14:24
Use good grammar, punctuation, and show what you've tried. They can't expect much more than that. – George Stocker Sep 27 '12 at 14:29

Sounds like it would be appropriate on Super User.

Hmmm... I'm not arguing you but isn't that a question a bit too basic to be posted on Super User? I'd rather not get -10000 reputation because of such a thing. :) – Konrad Viltersten Sep 27 '12 at 14:23
If it's too basic, don't ask it. But then I can think of no other site where it would be appropriate. Barring a relevant chat room on SU, you're on your own. – Bart Sep 27 '12 at 14:25
There's much, much worse there, believe me. A question about installing a language in a major web browser is very much on topic for Super User. In fact, that's really the only place in the network for such a question. – Al E. Sep 27 '12 at 14:25
@Chamster: Please keep in mind that other people might share your problem. They might be very happy to find a proper answer on Super User (after you've posted your question). And, yes, your question will be welcome on Super User :) – Oliver Salzburg Sep 27 '12 at 14:28
@Bart My point was that I can't tell if it's too basic. I don't want to cause a storm of rage like the last time when a few contributors misunderstood my point. That's why I'm asking first. – Konrad Viltersten Sep 27 '12 at 14:29
@AlEverett & OliverSalzburg Got it. Thank you for a straightforward reply. Will check the answer green as soon as SO'll let me! – Konrad Viltersten Sep 27 '12 at 14:31
@Chamster Sure. No problem. That's why I said "if". And perhaps probing in an on-topic chat room might not be a bad idea anyway. I can't judge the question though. I'm not active on the site. – Bart Sep 27 '12 at 14:32
@Bart Chat room? What do you mean? MSN? – Konrad Viltersten Sep 27 '12 at 14:34
Every Stack Exchange site has an associated chat room. Check the links at the top of the page. – Al E. Sep 27 '12 at 14:35
No, each site has their own chat rooms. If you have sufficient rep (20 I think) you can participate. The link named "chat" at the very top of the page leads to the chat rooms for that particular SO/SE – Bart Sep 27 '12 at 14:35
Sight... I thought Meta was a common forum for all the sections... And chat, I don't think I've seen it... Might be a bit hard to find the right chat room for every uncertainty one has. But still - a good tip. – Konrad Viltersten Sep 27 '12 at 14:37
