What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 131 Stack Exchange communities.

I understand that Stack Overflow is for technical questions only. Is there another version for other aspects of software—such as marketing software—similar to serverfault.com for admin questions? If not, what do you think about the idea?

I have no use for a marketing site, but if you think it would be useful, I say go for it.

I don't see how to create my own...I'm really surprised there isn't a marketing SO. –  chovy Oct 24 '12 at 9:31

Thanks. I think OnStartups is more appropriate for what I'm after. –  chovy Oct 24 '12 at 17:05

I think marketing with relation to Software is in fact valid for Stack Overflow? As would other external factors relating to development.

I've seen a number of marketing-type questions get savaged... it turns out that SO mainly cares about the actual act of programming. –  Marc Gravell Jul 7 '09 at 8:44
    
Marc is correct... If the core of the question is not how to do something Console.WriteLine("hello world"); or something a bit more challenging, it'll get savaged as Marc put it. –  RSolberg Jul 8 '09 at 16:42

I have to say, this post inspired me...

Seems you have not best experience working with marketing? :P –  bluszcz Jul 19 '12 at 11:26

You may possibly see sites like this pop up on StackExchange as different communities in and around the web want a home for things. Fishing, Football, all kinds of things would be possible in that world.
