If I have a specific question I want to ask about, but I don't know which Stack Exchange site would be on topic for asking that question, where can I ask where to ask that question?

Is there any generic place where we can ask for advice? Is it here?

This is not about a specific question but in general.

For example: "Where should I ask for advice about fishing?", or if I need to know where I should ask "What would be the best fishing rod to fish for salmon?" (regardless of how good/bad these examples are)

    I really enjoy just the fact that this question exists. It makes me calm. Computer scientists love meta, and sometimes play with meta meta. But none of these cases was so beautiful like this. Easy to read, and to understand. For everybody! – Volker Siegel Aug 24 '18 at 1:18

It's here and you've used the correct tag for it, .

As per the tag wiki excerpt:

After looking through the site list, https://stackexchange.com/sites, don't know where to ask your question on the Stack Exchange Network? Give as much detail as possible about the question you'd like to ask, and the community will help you find the appropriate site.

A couple of tips:

  • To increase the chances that the community can recommend you the correct site, consider including a copy of your intended question in quote markup.
  • Be sure to explicitly phrase your question as a site recommendation (e.g. "where can I ask this question?"); if you don't do so, we may believe you're trying to get your answer here and your question may be marked as off-topic.
  • Ok, then I found nowhere it was written it was here. Maybe, we can do something about that (write it somewhere or, as I said, purpose another SE dedicated to that on area 51 maybe) – JeromeJ Feb 18 '13 at 22:23

    Well, your question has achieved just that. Asked and answered. This is the place. Any future such questions can be closed as a duplicate of this one. ;) – Bart Feb 18 '13 at 22:24

    I think the OP was suggesting that an addendum go in the Help Centre or somewhere obvious, specifying that people can use this site as a "Where do I ask?" forum, so people don't have to search/ask the "Where do I ask where do I ask?" question. Or maybe I misunderstood. – Lou Jun 2 '14 at 10:56

    Wow, the site-recommendation tag really does belong on this question itself. How meta-meta. – chharvey Aug 10 '15 at 0:51
