I think that each Stack Exchange site (e.g., "Robotics", "Stack Overflow", ...) has their own explanation of the topic scope - what is allowed and what not.

But where to find it? Sorry I can not see a link for that and often ask "wrong" questions at the "wrong" place.


Two places to look at:

  • The tour (at /tour) on every site
  • The help center (at /help) - again, for every site, there will be two articles on what is on-topic and what isn't

You can find them in the "help" menu in the top bar, and as links on the bottom of the page.

    Those two articles can be found under /help/on-topic and /help/dont-ask (though the latter isn't site-specific). – Glorfindel Jul 26 '17 at 13:32

Every site has a What's on topic? page. Just navigate to https://something.stackexchange.com/help/on-topic and you'll find it.
