As the team lead for a development (C#) team, I'm always looking for ways to improve my ability to manage the software development process. This might be software development methodologies, tools or other like-topics.
I'm finding it increasingly frustrating that even though a question might have a high number of views, votes and responses, my questions are still being closed as non-programming-related.
I feel that the community are becoming too hardlined about what constitues a programming question and the deletionists among them are driving StackOverflow too far toward a purist model at the exclusion of other programming-related disciplines.
My view is that Jeff Atwood has already conceded that these sorts of questions have merit (mine's not even supposed to be fun - it's a serious question about a legitimate issue). So how does one legitimise their place in the StackOverflow community?
