I'm trying to go through the CRU leaked programs and do some basic program analysis. I'm encountering some difficulty due to the fact I don't know Fortran. I'd like to post a question on StackOverflow offering the link and keeping track of interesting things people find (Community Wiki of course). For various reasons this seems likely to be closed. Would this be an acceptable question to ♦Management, and if so, how could I make it less likely to be closed?
What is meta?
- Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
- The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
- Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates
If your question is about Fortran, there will be no problem. If its about climatic research, this obviously is not the place - unless maybe questions about algorithms and such.
So make it programming oriented, and you do not even have to c-wikify it.
But where do you see likelihood for closing?
without an example, it's hard to say.
the best way to know is: post one and find out; make it c-wiki
I'll answer both Ralph's last question ("But where do you see likelihood for closing?") and the OP's in one.
The main two reasons this might be closed is:
As far as Management, Joel is flying an Obama banner on JoS web site, but he generally strikes me as a guy with integrity, so here's to hoping. No clue whatsovere about Atwood's views.
