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 have a effort estimation related question. Which Stack Exchange site should I use?

Effort estimation... of what? I don't know that effort estimation is itself a specific topic of any particular Stack Exchange site, so it would help to identify what kind of effort you're estimating. – Grace Note Dec 22 '10 at 13:18

My take would be that like shopping recommendations, questions asking for an estimate for a programming project are not suitable on any of the sites. It's impossible to make a good estimate on anything without intimately knowing both the project, and the people who will do the work. This is by definition way too localized for a general Q&A site.

Questions about how to make an estimate - about methods, customs, and general pitfalls in estimating a project - may be suitable on Stack Overflow or - more often - the new programmers Stack Exchange site.

It will be six to eight weeks anyway. – Piskvor Dec 22 '10 at 14:53
I agree with you. I am only looking for key considerations specific for certain platorms like Android and iPhone (Some of the considerations all of us know are the number of input fields / validation, number of buttons, etc) Thanks. – Ravisankar S Jan 12 '11 at 14:47
