I recently asked this question on Stack Overflow, now moved to Software Recommendations.

Where can I ask about algorithm recommendations? Because there are two algorithms for what I'm trying to do, and both have a very high error rate, at least for my case. It seems that Stack Overflow is not the right place for algorithm recommendations.

Software Recommendations would be the best choice. Asking for an algorithm recommendation would be on-topic, as long as you do everything here when asking your question. There's an tag that would be perfect for your question.

    Can I ask it on Programmers.se? Or CS.SE? My problem with Softrec is that it's not that active nowadays, plus many of it's visitors are not programmers, because it's for everyone. A CS studying natural language processing or any programmer, might be more able to answer it.

  • @Lynob you probably could ask on cs.se, but I would bet it would be much more well-received on SR.SE

    @Lynob asking for recommendations is off topic on Software Engineering

  • It would also be out of scope at CS.SE; Software Recommendation SE fills the void for that purpose
