Yes, there's a list of sites where you see the taglines, e.g. Stack Overflow is "Q&A for professional and enthusiast programmers". Of course, that's not nearly detailed enough, and therefore all sites have their own version of the Help Center article What topics can I ask about here?. To quickly go from one site's version to another, you only need to ...

You won't likely find a site on Stack Exchange which would work well for this type of question. Only Microsoft knows why they made specific architectural decisions (unless there coincidentally happens to be an interview about it somewhere). But more typically, questions about why [company] doesn't use [other platform] becomes quite tiring as folks who [love ...

I appreciate the idea of wanting a place for all languages, particularly those that can't sustain a site of their own. What this fails to address is that many of these sites either require or at least allow questions in the site language (e.g. French or English on the French site), making a composite site particularly confusing for everyone involved. With ...

I have X and want to get Y. What are some development tool/libraries/framework options that can achieve this that you'd recommend? And SR.SE can already handle that. Your question was closed because it asked for "communication protocols", AKA: algorithms. You weren't looking for software; you were looking for approaches to solve a software problem. What you ...

I'm not 100% sure (it's hard to be without seeing the exact question you want to ask), but I think your best bet is Engineering Stack Exchange. They have a tag [materials] which can be used for questions about manufacturing: Use for questions about designing, manufacturing or synthesizing engineered materials or about the properties of specific materials. ...

As of now, the best place for all Vim (and Vi) questions is definitely the dedicated Vi and Vim Stack Exchange.

I remember Mathematics Stack Exchange has a couple of questions asking about terminology in different languages, e.g. German for “contiguous simplicial maps” (English to German) German for "Liouvillian extension" (English to German) French Question regarding vector spaces (English to French) English term for "Standardabschätzung" (...

Catija's answer is spot on. I think I should add a few pointers why this might not be as good an idea as you think. A polyglot site sounds great at first glance, but I reckon most polyglot questions would be translation requests, including which is not a good idea because Most of them are low quality. They rarely ever show any attempt, unless it's from an ...

I can't guarantee an answer but - if you mean software - and you need to include a platform and what you need and so on, software recommendations would be the site. This goes into detail and here's a shorter version of their recommended information you need to include when asking a question. . Great paraphrasing does involve some personal style, and ...

You can already do this. I see a lot of whitespace on your profile page: and you can edit it to include code; it supports most post formatting, including (non-runnable) code snippets. (The preview suggests syntax highlighting works, if it's enabled on the site; unfortunately, it doesn't, which you'll notice when you save and go back to the Profile tab.) In ...

If you don't want to be part of a community that doesn't live up to your expectations, there's a simple solution: delete your account. You can't petition to have a Stack Exchange site closed, just like you can't petition to dissolve a sovereign country whose inhabitants you don't like.

As explained in the FAQ, recommendation questions are off-topic for most Stack Exchange sites: Good questions: ... Don't ask for product or service recommendations. (except for Software Recommendations and Hardware Recommendations) You're basically asking for software recommendations, but one that is explicitly off-topic according to this ...

Yes, those two sites (and Server Fault) come to mind. It's largely a matter of whether you're asking a 'professional' or 'consumer' question: Network Engineering Stack Exchange is for asking questions about professionally managed networks in a business environment. ...

I suggest that Webmasters is the place to go. There aren't many questions, but there is a wix tag there. Web Apps would be an alternative, as there's a wix.com tag there (with about as many questions), but your question should be focused on the functionality of the user interface.
