What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 134 Stack Exchange communities.

Q1: Where can I ask about wifi configuration?

Q2: Is there a list of all stackoverflow-like sites, so I could find the right place myself?

Q3:

Oops! Your question couldn't be submitted because: must include one of these tags -- 'bug feature-request discussion support'

WTF? It's none of them, is it? So maybe my question doesn't belong here? So where can I ask where to ask this question? :D

I don't see the reasons for the down votes. If you think that Q1 is misplaced, see Q2. Isn't Q2 a good question? Does any one of those mandatory tags apply? Please explain -- I'm a newbie here, and yes, I've read the FAQ and tried myself before asking. –  maaartinus Jan 23 '11 at 23:33

It's somewhat difficult right now, and this is a known issue.

There are planned changes that should help to organize the sites, but the exact form of these changes is unknown at the moment.

Your best bet is probably to browse or search the full list of sites, or simply plug your question into Google to see if it can come up with an answer (because I assume you are looking for an answer primarily).

If you feel your question doesn't fit into any of the existing sites, you can ask a "where to ask" question on this Meta site -- we kindly request that you do your own research first, and post here only as a last resort if you can't figure it out. But as I said, there are changes coming that will make it easier to get help on your own.

Thank you. I know, I should always try my own searching first, but I didn't know how, Google didn't help, because it's no single "site:" and there are too many useless matches. The "search all sites" form on stackexchange.com is what I needed. –  maaartinus Jan 23 '11 at 23:27

On the top left of this page click on StackExchange then click on all sites. That should have links and descriptions to each.

Good to know, thank you. Unfortunately, the list is long and not searchable. Maybe "Electronics and Robotics" or maybe "Server Fault" could be right. –  maaartinus Jan 23 '11 at 15:14
    
@maa: Sorry, but meta is not a reception desk. Yes, the list is long and getting longer. What would you "search" for even if you could? Individual communities don't produce laundry lists of everything you could possibly ask about. –  Aarobot Jan 23 '11 at 17:11
    
Sorry, but meta is not a reception desk. - OK, so tell me where I find the reception desk. If I could search, I'd try some words like "wi-fi", "network", etc. No idea if it'd help, but it could. UPDATE: On the "full list of sites" by Jon, it works. –  maaartinus Jan 23 '11 at 23:21
