I have a question about coding style / indentation and alignment, and I don't know where (or if) there is a Stack Exchange site suitable for that.

I only figured that it would not be an o.k. question for Stack Overflow, because it is both off-topic and primarily opinion based, and I don't think it's suitable for Code Review either.

A sample question:

How should I align the following long construct to make it a little more readable?

return LongClassName.DoSomething<TReturn, TExceptionOnFailure, TPassedData>(myReturn, new MyException(), this.helper.Data);

Where can I ask such questions?


I think you nailed the problem: usually such questions are primarily option based, which is off-topic almost everywhere.

Stack Overflow is a no-go, so is Software Engineering in my opinion.

It might fit on Code Review:

If you have a working piece of code from your project and are looking for open-ended feedback in the following areas:

  • Best practices and design pattern usage

I am not sure if code style falls in the "best practices category, but you can always as on their meta.

  • thank you for the answer. I didn't even know they had a meta too (stupid, I know). I think I will try to ask there first, thank you. – Thomas Flinkow Mar 23 '18 at 9:37
  • Note: Best practices in general are off-topic. – Peilonrayz Apr 20 at 17:22
