I am currently doing some electronics and microcontroller programming, and I have a couple of questions to ask the people here.

Most of the questions are regarding wiring on breadboards and components.

On which of the websites (Stack Overflow, Server Fault, or Super User) should I ask these particular questions?

The site for Electronic Design questions is: https://electronics.stackexchange.com/ however please note that this does not accept questions about the usage of consumer products.

  • I asked a question on Electronics which was closed because someone decided it was about "use of electronic devices", although my question was really about how the design of the device could allow overheating (of a laptop) and by what electrical mechanism it could have happened. I would like to know which site is appropriate for this question if Electronics is not: electronics.stackexchange.com/questions/638597/…

Well, if it's about microcontroller programming you could try Stack Overflow as it is a programming question, but I'm not sure there's much of an audience for that kind of question. You never know until you try though I guess.

Other than that, it doesn't really fit Stack Overflow, Server Fault or Super User.

  • Well that's the thing...it's not really about the programming per ce, but mostly about the electronics stuff...wiring, components, soldering and all that Aug 23, 2009 at 10:57

    That definitely doesn't fit anywhere.

  • hmm, so i guess this is a feature request then Aug 23, 2009 at 11:32

Not sure if this is a feature request. The topic of conversation is defined by the goal of the site, and this particular question does not fit in any of the current Trilogy sites. I would imagine the only way to be able to handle this is by either stating or expecting a electronics site to come out of StackExchange when it is open to the public, and I am pretty confident we will see that fairly early on.

I would suggest you keep an eye on the list of StackExchange available here. There is no Electronics site listed as yet.
