I have questions about many things in MediaWiki. In which site should I post my questions?

This question came from our discussion, support, and feature requests site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

    Really depends a lot on what sorts of things you're doubting. – Shog9 Oct 31 '14 at 3:57
  • @Shog9: What about this (superuser.com/questions/833758/…) question? I have asked 3 questions about mediawiki in Superuser but received nothing as an answer. – Arshad Muhammed Oct 31 '14 at 4:24

If your question is about using MediaWiki from the perspective of a user, Web Applications is probably okay.

If your question is about setup, configuration, customization, or other topics of concern to an owner/administrator, it looks like Pro Webmasters would be a good fit.

(Both of those sites have about an equal number of questions with that tag as Super User, so it looks like maybe your questions are okay where they are.)

As always, check the site's Help Center before posting. You can always ask on a site's Meta (or chat) if your question would be on-topic. (Assuming, of course, you have enough Reputation to do so.)

  • Actually, the OP won't have the association bonus, so they might not be able to ask on that site's meta. – Scimonster Oct 31 '14 at 13:23

    @Scimonster: Chat either, I suppose. Well, there's always "trial by fire". – Fish Below the Ice Oct 31 '14 at 13:24
  • I've been told that questions about creating templates are not on-topic at Web Apps: webapps.stackexchange.com/questions/120176/… – endolith Sep 1 '18 at 3:01

There is currently a Wikis.SE proposal, but it's in early stages of definition. If that ever makes it into a site, it would probably be on topic there.

But until then, you should follow Fish Below the Ice's advice.

    The Wiki.SE proposal has since been deleted. – Stevoisiak Aug 8 '17 at 19:34
