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

Where would be the correct site to ask a question about certification requirements for Windows Store apps? I asked the following question on and it was closed as off-topic:

That's fine, but no suggestion was given on the correct destination. I deliberately chose not to post it on, the site on which I am most active, because it seemed out-of-scope there. Is there a third programmer-related site for such questions?

Thanks for your help getting this answered.

Note: there is not a single forum hosted on Stack Exchange, only Q&A sites. I believe the correct place to ask that would be on a Microsoft Store forum or support board (i.e. ask Microsoft). Or sign up on – Mat Dec 28 '12 at 13:33

Not every question is on topic somewhere on the SE network. This is by design. StackOverflow, as you noted, is specifically about code questions - not the specific rules of various software stores. Similarly, Programmers.SE pretty clearly states that it's for conceptual questions about software development which is a definition that doesn't seem to fit your question either.

If you feel that there's enough of a base of experts and questions needing answered about a subject that isn't covered by an existing site, you can propose a new one at Area 51, or search the existing proposals there to support one that fits your question.

There is an App Store proposal currently in the Commitment phase. – Al E. Dec 28 '12 at 15:01
