I don't know which Stack Exchange site I should use...

These are some examples of the question type I want to share:

  • Is it possible to become a software developer in two years?
  • Why don't the well-known applications in Windows use WPF or UWP technologies?
  • Should I learn the design patterns that I'll never use?

and the like.

These questions are all either too broad or opinion-based to be acceptable anywhere on the Stack Exchange network.

The thing about these questions you listed have problems:

Is it possible to become a software developer in two years?

It is a kind of Stack Overflow question, but this is actually unanswerable, as it depends on the basis of programming skill, so it is opinion-based, and not suitable for the network.

Why are the well-known applications in Windows don't use WPF or UWP technologies?

Which version of Windows are you implying to? Which apps? This question that could be part of Super User need details or clarity or needs more focus.

Should I learn the design patterns that I'll never use?

It is up to you, which the comments might imply, so it is also opinion-based.


Needless to say, there is no way these kinds of questions are answerable unless there is some context or anything that can make it answerable.

You can use Jon Skeet's guide for writing good questions or follow the help pages to be able to get a good question with good answers.

    "Why are the well-known applications in Windows don't use WPF or UWP technologies?" - Is a horrible Super User question. The Super User community won't be able to answer such a broad question. We don't know the reason why some applications have been updated to UWP applications and some applications have not been updated. If a user were to ask that question on Super User I would vote to immediately close it as being "too broad" and/or seeking an opinion. The question doesn't even specify which applications have not been upgraded. One might be able to point to a future build. – Ramhound Jan 5 at 14:46
  • I specified that. Thanks for clarifications. Shall I give you a citation after the hard days of the work? – Mark Giraffe Jan 5 at 18:47
