What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 130 Stack Exchange communities.

From the FAQs for all sites, under "What kinds of questions should I not ask here?":

If your motivation for asking the question is “I would like to participate in a discussion about ______”, then you should not be asking here.

Now that we have a "third place" where discussions are okay, shouldn't it be mentioned in the FAQ?

Great idea! We've been pointing people to chat in comments on Programmers. Would be nice to have a FAQ note. –  Anna Lear May 5 '11 at 13:45

Great idea! I just added this to the faq like so:

If your motivation for asking the question is “I would like to participate in a discussion about ______”, then you should not be asking here. However, you are more than welcome to have such discussions in our real time web chat.

If your motivation is “I would like others to explain ______ to me”, then you are probably OK.
