Is there anywhere on Stack Exchange for this question I asked? https://softwareengineering.stackexchange.com/questions/78651/suggestions-on-what-database-to-use

(Also, should this be tagged as "support" and not as "discussion"?)

Shopping recommendation questions are generally off-topic on all StackExchange sites.

DBA.Stackexchange.com might be a good venue, if you can ask a question that has a specific answer, and is not merely a poll.


Yes. Ask it on dba with a slant towards actually defining what your database requirements are.

PS: I'm one of the mods on dba.SE, so I can promise you that a well-crafted question will be quite welcome there. But if you just say "databases are hard, let's go shopping" I'll close it in a heartbeat. ;)
