I've noticed the Stack Exchange has grown immensely since its inception as Stack Overflow. As a result, I find asking questions in the right place here unnecessarily challenging. I'm wondering if you have thought about implementing a feature on the Stack Exchange central site where people ask the question there and either the scripts or staff/community members would sort the question to the right place.

Not sure if this would be too challenging or costly to implement. Just a thought to save your time while making users' lives easier.

    It's not abundantly clear to me how "staff/community members sorting questions to the right place" is going to save their time :)

If you're not willing to invest the small amount of time it takes to figure out where to ask your question -- the odds of your question being a good one are .. small.

It is improper to put the burden of "help me figure out where to ask" on the very experts you wish to answer your question.

  • True, but the number of portals on the Stackexchange these days is becoming overwhelming (hence the reason why I raised the question).
