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
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I've come to realize in my short time at stack overflow that the users are very strict about the type and quality of questions on the site.

Is there an associated site where more frivolous questions could be asked? For example, I asked a question on career choices in the IT industry, which was closed by several users. What would be the right place for such a question, if at all there is one. At first glance, SUPER USER doesn't seem to be the answer.

For the very frivolous ones: ? – Gnoupi Jun 4 '10 at 13:32
"the users are very strict about the type and quality of questions on the site" ::grumble:: That depends on the user. There are more than a few that think that SO and SF are places for frivolous questions. ::grumble:: – dmckee Jun 4 '10 at 14:21
@dmckee: nothing wrong with frivolity, so long as it's on-topic. see for example "How do I teach my command line manners?": certainly frivolous, but clearly (once you read the question) on-topic. i'm not sure whether IT career questions are frivolous, but they're definitely not on-topic. – quack quixote Jun 4 '10 at 17:45
