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

  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I have asked this question on stackoverflow and it was closed as off topic. I would like to ask which site would it be on topic.

I have answered quite a few similar questions on stackoverflow helping others to fight through the nightmare that building a library may become.

Programmers.SE? – Cole Johnson Mar 26 '13 at 22:53

This question is in the gray area. You can see it as a programming problem, but it isn't about code. But is probably to technical for SuperUser.

I would have tried Ubuntu. According to the Ubuntu FAQ, this question should be acceptable.

But the Unix & Linux FAQ has no section on coding.

Can you point out why according to stackoverflow the question is not acceptable? In my opinion if a question is in the gray area and may or may not belong on a site descision should always be in favour of the question. After all we try to help not to close as many questions as possible. – izomorphius Mar 26 '13 at 21:54
I'm not sure it is not acceptable. Or I wouldn't have closed it. Unfortunately there is a subjective element, hence the gray area. – Toon Krijthe Mar 26 '13 at 21:58
And I'm not the only one. It is almost open (4/5 reopen votes). – Toon Krijthe Mar 26 '13 at 22:00

I'm not sure where the users that closed that question envisioned it being more appropriate.

SuperUser because if you squint right it's about installing end-user software rather than a programming problem?

Unix and Linux or Ask Ubuntu because it's more on-topic there?

Some tags can be fairly strict about what's considered topical.

I thought it was a fine question and voted to re-open.
