I often find myself going to new SE sites when I have what I think is a fairly complicated question that experts on the subject should be able to answer.
What I hope for is a concise answer to a difficult problem, but instead I tend to get redirects to other sites because I've asked the wrong people, indications that my questions are not very well-informed, or indicators that my questions are duplicates.
This all suggests to me that I shouldn't be asking questions if I'm not already an expert, but is this true? Should I be asking questions on an SE that I'm admittedly not an expert of if I feel the question pertains to their expertise? Or should I only ask a question on an SE if I'm already an expert on the subject?
