My question Who is developing Wake?Who is developing Wake? (10k link) was closed as unclear what I'm asking. In addition, one user posted a comment on my question saying, "recommended reading: Why we're not customer support for [your favorite company]Why we're not customer support for [your favorite company]."
I disagree with both reasons for closing my question and would appreciate it if the closers' reasoning could be made more clear to me. I'm active around the SE network, but not much on ProgrammersSoftware Engineering, so I might not understand Programmers'Software Engineering's specific community standards, and if that's the case, I would appreciate it if what I did poorly could be explained to me so I can write better questions in the future.
Secondly, I disagree with the comment directing me to Why we're not customer support for [your favorite company]Why we're not customer support for [your favorite company] (although I will admit that I am less confident in my reasoning about this comment then I am about whether my question is clear). I think what the comment is getting at is that Programmers.SESoftware Engineering isn't the right place to ask for information that would be better obtained from the developers of the language I'm asking about, and asking who is developing a language is an example of such a question.
As a result, I would argue that asking who is developing a language is, at the least, on-topic at Programmers.SESoftware Engineering.
I also disagree that this is a question that I should only ask the developer of Wake instead of on Programmers.SESoftware Engineering for three reasons. First, as I just discussed, I think knowing who develops a language is something that is of general interest to programmers. Second, as I mention in my question, I was having trouble identifying who the developer was! I'm not able to ask a question of someone if I don't know who they are. Third, I'm not asking for support for the language per say. Instead, I'm asking for some background on it. I agree that if I wanted to understand how to use the language, that would be a much better question for the Wake developer (or at least SO).
Have [the deveopers]developers] made any announcements about why they decided to create Wake?
Do my arguments make sense? If so, can my question please be reopened? If not, can you please let me know why my question still goes against Programmers.SE'sSoftware Engineering's standards so I can avoid these mistakes in the future?
