Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

I am working on my second start-up Lotaar, and I am what you guys will call "the idea guy" co-founder. But I am responsible for product development and user experience (UX) along side the normal business responsibilities. And I am now learning HTML and CSS so I will be of more help to my technical co-founder.

The type of questions I normally have relate to things like "Are there templates for Admin panels?" "How should you set up automated transactional emails as regards to content and frequency.", and I might have some newbie CSS, JavaScript and HTML questions.

As these are not hard core programming questions, I am wondering if this site will be appropriate for me. From experience, I believe the product guy should work closely with the programmers so I have assumed you guys/girls will have answers to my questions.

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

Questions about StackOverflow itself should be posted at meta.stackoverflow.com, not at stackoverflow.com (which is only for programming-related questions). – Andreas Rejbrand Aug 8 '10 at 14:09
Well, the non-programmer dude managed to get a link to his website in on the first sentence. And get some people to take him seriously, without any of them getting rid of the spam link. Give him a raise.<br/>Can somebody just get rid of that link please before somebody accidentally clicks it? – Uphill Luge Aug 8 '10 at 22:38

While questions like this one might not be entirely welcome, as it's not exactly a programming question, I think you'll find a lot of people willing to jump on your other questions. There are a lot of very experienced and clever people that will be able to answer questions on 'the right way to do things', what tools are available, etc. And equally, there are a lot of us that like an opportunity to score points on 'newbie' questions of all kinds.

It doesn't matter whether you are a programmer or not: What matters is whether your questions are programming related. Judging from the titles, I'd say the E-Mail one is definitely one. CSS, Javascript and HTML questions are also welcome. (Be sure to use the search first, though - thousands of those have already been answered!)

I'd say go ahead and ask - you sound like somebody able to ask intelligent questions, and if something is deemed not programming related, it will simply get closed, which is not a catastrophe.

You will probably get better answers to your HTML and CSS questions by posting them on the dedicated SE web design site, Doctype.com.

Point of interest: DocType isn't an SE site; it was inspired by it. blog.stackoverflow.com/2009/08/stack-overflow-and-doctype (Translation: Not run by Jeff et al :p) – Margaret Aug 8 '10 at 21:22

From the sample questions you give, I wonder if you might want to direct your questions to http://superuser.com instead.
