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

Where can I ask this question?

I thought it was clearly about gaming, but moderators closed it as offtopic and I don't know where to ask it. Psychology SE is early in Area51. What SE could I use instead?

(I believe that every good answerable question should have a StackExchange for it)

Update: The question got deleted (even StackPrinter fails to find it), so summarizing it here:

Why, when I play some game, is the first play attempt
more successful than the subsequent ones?
Only after 10-20 tries it begins to "recover" to original level.

Is it some well-known effect or is it just me?

The question is still open for me BTW

May be there should be "offtopic.stackexchange.com" to have a place for good questions, but not on topic on existing SEs? – Anonymous Jun 29 '11 at 9:04
    
And where do you go to express frustration with a certain topic when you keep running into a brick wall, nobody can help you, and your problem seems to be impossible with no solution? – Michael Jun 2 '13 at 20:58
    
Is this question posted somewhere? Because I would like to upvote it. I also often experience "beginner's luck". – tsuma534 Jul 18 at 8:56

The place for psychological questions in general is Cognitive Sciences beta: see the FAQ. However your question would need to show some research effort, it's more a site for researchers, university level students and those who apply psychology/etc principles in their jobs.

Is observing just myself (maybe making a table of attempt number, game, time, subjective and objetive "successfulness" of attempt) enough "research effort" to open a question there? – Anonymous Aug 10 '12 at 15:59

There are a lot of topics that aren't (yet) covered by Stack Exchange sites. With Area51, it is easy to add a topic, but you need at least 200 people to start a site. So if you really like an answer, take some effort into getting more people involved in the Area51 proposal.

If you are successful, you get an active community and a lot of Area51 badges.

An other alternative is to find an answer outside Stack Exchange, easier, but not as rewarding.
