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
  1. How do I ask a question on Stack Exchange? I don't see any "ask question" button.

  2. On which one should I post my question, Stack Exchange or Stack Overflow?

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

Looks like you found the "ask question" button, to ask this. You would normally pose your question on the relevant site for which it is on topic, so if it is the sort of software development question that relates to a piece of source code, you'd ask it here, if it was about improving your photography, you'd ask it on the relevant StackExchange site, etc. – Rowland Shaw Nov 8 '12 at 9:02
You need to access the individual StackExchange sites; see – irrelephant Nov 8 '12 at 9:03

Stack Exchange is the portal to all the sites in the Stack Exchange network, as it clearly says in the page:

Stack Exchange is a fast-growing network of 91 question and answer sites on diverse topics from software programming to cooking to photography and gaming. We build libraries of high-quality questions and answers, focused on the most important topics in each area of expertise. From our core of Q&A, to community blogs and real-time chat, we provide experts with the tools they need to make The Internet a better place.

You can't ask a question in this portal, you have to go to a specific site of your choice and ask your question there.

If your question is related to programming and satisfy the conditions in the faq then by all means, go ahead and ask it on Stack Overflow.

Good luck, and happy programming!
