Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 153 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

How can I know which question should be asked on which Stack Exchange site?

How can I figure out which Stack Exchange site is the best one to ask a question on?

For example, if I'm a programmer, and I want to ask a question about Eclipse, how do I know which site is the best to ask my question on?

  • stackoverflow.com
  • programmer.stackexchange.com
  • or something else?

Is there a way to search the "about" pages for all Stack Exchange sites and see if I can find one that's a good match?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Every site has a FAQ linked at the top. Read those. And if in doubt, ask on the site-specific Meta. – Bart Jan 24 '13 at 16:34
    
P.s. if you really intend this to be a feature request (as originally tagged), make it a clear feature request. What you have now is more of a support question. – Bart Jan 24 '13 at 16:36

Visiting http://stackexchange.com/sites gives you an overview of the stack exchange community of sites, and a brief overview of each. You can use this to help select which one might be best for your question, and click through to get more information.

A lot of this is going to depend on the content of your question:

  • If you are writing a macro or extension for Eclipse, that belongs on Stack Overflow.
  • If you are looking for suggestions about how to use Eclipse most efficiently in your workflow, that belongs on Programmers.

Questions about the use of a specific feature or problem specific to your install don't belong the SE network. They should be asked on some type of Eclipse-specific forum.
