Actually, I want to know which Stack Exchange site can be used to ask questions that are related to coding, but not broken or not to check whether the code is efficient or not.

For example,

  1. Is that a good idea to use jQuery in React
  2. Which is good for beginners, npm or yarn?
  3. Can React native control hardware devices?

These are a few questions that are very much off-topic on Stack Overflow or the code review site.

My actual questions are different, but somewhat similar to those.

  • The first 2 sound opinion based, and generally, opinion based questions aren't appropriate for most of the SE network. You may want to post on a discussion site instead. Oct 15, 2017 at 15:19
  • Na my question are different I just want to ask which site is appropriate. For offtopic coding related questions. Oct 15, 2017 at 15:21
  • @RaajNadar - There isn't a SE website for "offtopic coding" questions. In the future, please ask if a question is appropriate, only if it is your real potential question

I think the first two are primarily opinion based. You can make anything a bad idea. I suspect with some code, or at the very least very careful scoping, and an excellently written question with a realworld example, you could probably fit the last in SO.

The problem here isn't with code or lack of it though - its that many of these questions are, as per the help pages on most site

You should only ask practical, answerable questions based on actual problems that you face. Chatty, open-ended questions diminish the usefulness of our site and push other questions off the front page.

This is the real issue with questions like this, and there's no real site that would handle questions like "is this a good idea" or "should I use A or B?"

  • No no my question are different. I want a place where I can ask the best lanuage that I can use to achieve a certain task in coding. Oct 15, 2017 at 15:26
  • @RaajNadar "The best language" is entirely opinion based. Oct 15, 2017 at 15:27
  • So this types of questions are against SE rules? Oct 15, 2017 at 15:29

    Quite literally meta.stackexchange.com/help/dont-ask what this says. Its just not a good fit for a QA format that requires one correct answer. Oct 15, 2017 at 15:30
  • @RaajNadar Generally, yes. SE sites are for objective questions, with the exception of a few sites like Interpersonal and Workplace that will always illicit some opinion. Oct 15, 2017 at 15:31
  • Thanks for linking that page. I am clear what to ask and what not to ask now. Oct 15, 2017 at 15:35
