Which site should I use for my question? And where do I find this info? - Stack Exchange's Site Directory

Is there a tool somewhere which will help me decide which site is best for my question? I believe this could be done through the tags, but sometimes I have a doubt. Also, some sites have greater communities (in terms of size), and even if the people are generally less qualified, it means that my question is more likely to be seen.

I know this has been asked here before. Ah, yes. Found it: meta.stackexchange.com/questions/72100/… –  Al E. Dec 20 '10 at 19:05

Obviously you should ask on whereshouldIpost.stackexchange.com:

WhereShouldIPost? is the Q&A for beginner question askers looking for the correct StackExchange site where to post their question - check out the FAQ!

I don't get it. I click on your link and it says not found. Or is this a joke I'm missing? –  User Jul 20 '11 at 22:07
    
@User: it was a joke. It would be hilarious if the SE network went so meta to have a site for users to ask question about where to post their questions. :P –  Matteo Italia Jul 20 '11 at 23:39

Start here: http://stackexchange.com/sites

If you can't narrow it down to a single site, you're welcome to ask a question here on Meta and we can give you a specific recommendation.

You can also try "asking the network" your question, by using the search box on http://stackexchange.com (top right corner). This box is special in that it searches all network sites. This may help narrow things down.

I feel that this won't scale :) I hope there are thousands of SE sites sooner or later, and choosing the right one will probably be a little bit cumbersome :( –  Julien Genestoux Dec 19 '10 at 22:12
    
@Julien: Agreed. I updated my answer with an additional suggestion. –  Jon Seigel Dec 19 '10 at 22:33
