How do you reword this question so it's not asking for a list which is a reason to close or put a question on hold.

Any full web pages or examples using Twitter Bootstrap 3.0?

The question read:

I know Bootstrap 3.0 is still work in progress. I was wondering if there's any example site or page template using it?

Well, it's kind of hard to reword a single sentence that's asking for examples... Is there any other sort of question in there? –  animuson Jun 28 '13 at 16:38

It sounds like you're asking us to tell you how to ask a question that is off-topic in a way that it's not off-topic. You can't; it's off-topic. –  Robert Harvey Jun 28 '13 at 16:40
    
Did you try using it? What problem did you encounter? –  Bart Jun 28 '13 at 16:41
    
Even if it weren't asking for a list, it would be too broad. It seems you're just looking for general information about [topic]. That's not appropriate for SO. You need to have some much more specific question related to [topic] to ask the question. –  Servy Jun 28 '13 at 17:09

Can we please stop ████ing deleting questions while we're still talking about them? –  Pëkka Jun 28 '13 at 17:13
    
@pekka: I undeleted, and locked it for an hour. Is that long enough? –  Robert Harvey Jun 28 '13 at 17:15
    
@Robert, not to put speak for Pekka, but an hour might barely be long enough, it really depends on whether this discussion goes anywhere or not. –  jball Jun 28 '13 at 17:17
    
@Robert thanks! That sounds perfect (although jball has a point, but you have to draw the line somewhere.) –  Pëkka Jun 28 '13 at 17:17

@jball: OK, locked for 1 day. –  Robert Harvey Jun 28 '13 at 17:18
    
@animuson You want it as question: Do you know of any sites..? –  Tony_Henrich Jun 28 '13 at 17:28

@Tony with 5k rep you should know better. –  mikeTheLiar Jun 28 '13 at 17:28
    
@Robert Why is it off-topic? Bootstrap is a html template which is web design which is related to SO. There's even a tag for it. –  Tony_Henrich Jun 28 '13 at 17:29

@Tony_Henrich: Have you read the close banner that was attached to your question? What part of it is unclear? –  Robert Harvey Jun 28 '13 at 17:32

Your agreement is not required. This is not a new thing; list questions were never allowed on Stack Overflow. –  Robert Harvey Jun 28 '13 at 17:33

@Pekka웃 perhaps you want to add an answer to this meta question if you want to set a policy of not deleting questions being discussed on meta. –  Servy Jun 28 '13 at 17:56

The question is not a good fit for Stack Overflow and I can see no way to make it one.

Consider instead:

  • asking at the project's support forums or mailing list (if such a place exists)
  • finding other places that have discussion about the project
  • asking in the related Stack Exchange chat room
  • contacting the project's authors
  • Googling around for uses of the product, e.g. blog entries

My best shot would be to reword it to something like "Hello World/minimal example for Twitter Bootstrap 3.0", but even that is dicey. What would really be useful is addressing a specific problem you are having trying to include Twitter Bootstrap 3.0 in a template or webpage, which would I think naturally lead to a minimal working example as an answer.

I don't have a problem yet. I would like to see some sites or examples. It's like window shopping. You may check out a new gadget. It doesn't mean you need one right now. –  Tony_Henrich Jun 28 '13 at 17:38

Right, so maybe it's not the right time to ask an SO question about it. If you still feel compelled, ask about a specific challenge you forsee from your window shopping. But generally, a "help me window shop" question seems off topic. –  jball Jun 28 '13 at 17:45

What are you trying to do? What problem are you trying to solve? Is this idle curiosity, or do you suspect you might have a use for Twitter Bootstrap 3.0?
