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 would like to know what the appropriate Stack Exchange site to ask questions related to the Processing would be.

I'm referring to Processing, the Java-based visualization language — see It has its own forums, but they're not as good as Stack Exchange, naturally. =)

Having had a bad experience with a moderator moving posts to tumbleweed-land forums based on dubious interpretations of the not-very-effectively-descriptive "FAQ" section for each of these different Stack Exchange sites, I'd like an answer about where these questions should go first, so I can't be lectured about not reading the About page.

It looks like a StackOverflow question for me...

Processing is an open source programming language and environment for people who want to create images, animations, and interactions.

Just ask it on whatever website you feel would be the best fit; the worst that can happen is it will get moved.

A question getting moved is not really a big deal - it happens hundreds of times a day - so please don't make it one like last time.
