I'm just curious whether it is acceptable to post questions and answers that are usually considered off-topic. I don't know how to explain it better so I'll give an example to illustrate the idea:
Example: Webpages for programming newbies
Would it be considered off-topic if I post a question "Where can I learn to code?" on SE (probably on StackOverflow or Programmers) and answered to this question with the list I prepared as a community wiki?
This is just an example. I would like to learn whether community posts should follow the Q&A pattern or we can treat them as a real wiki, where you can add sources and share your knowledge with the community.
I perceive community wiki posts as something slightly different than ordinary posts. I've already read the definition here (What are "Community Wiki" posts?) but I still have got many doubts.
I'd be really grateful if someone could resolve my doubts.
