I've been trying to understand what kind of questions are appreciated at stackoverflow. I've been reading this article: https://blog.stackoverflow.com/2010/09/good-subjective-bad-subjective/
I think I don't really understand this paragraph:
Great subjective questions invite sharing experiences over opinions. Certainly experiences inform opinions, but the best subjective questions unabashedly and unashamedly prioritize sharing actual experiences over random opinions. It’s more useful to share with us what you’ve done than what you think. Everyone has an opinion. It takes zero effort or imagination to have an opinion about anything and everything. But people who have done things, real things in the world, and have the scars and arrows in their back to show for it — now that’s worth sharing. You should be uniquely qualified to have your opinion based on the specific experiences you had. And you should share those experiences, and more specifically what you learned from your experiences, with us!
Before I read this article, I thought that such questions that invite sharing experiences would get closed as not-constructive. After reading this, I'm in doubt.
According to the help center, questions about software tools commonly used by programmers are on topic at stackoverflow. Therefore it seems to me that it is allowed to write a questions which invite sharing experiences about for example programming languages (if it also meets the other criteria for good questions). Is this correct ? If so, what is an good example of such a question at stackoverflow.
To make my point more clear. When I serch on stackoverflow, I haven't ever seen a question like I'm describing that is still open. Therefore I wonder if it is even possible to write a question that asks for experiences that wouldn't get closed. And if this is possible, is there an example of such an question ? I would like to read it so that I better understand how to write such a question here that would not get closed.
