This is where the diagram on the Help Center comes into play.
Generally the accepted definition of what is acceptable here, whether it be career advice or not, is within the blue area of the diagram below.
I am having trouble convincing senior members of the team to go into crunch mode, how can I deal with senior members that are not willing to work 60+ hour work weeks to get the software project done?
On the surface you can clearly tell that this was written by a software developer or somebody that leads them. Really though this could apply to any type of project work, therefore if falls in the All Careers circle.
What is the best keyboard for programmers?
This one is even broader and applies to All People.
This one job is offerring me $50k per year but is in Indiana where the cost of living is cheaper and the job is more stable. Meanwhile I got another offer for $80k at a startup in Palo Alto but I will learn more cutting edge technologies. Decide my life for me!
This one is Too Localized and is unlikely to help future visitors in any way. It applies to Just You.
Regardless Career advice is unilaterally off topic as of this moment. It wasn't always so on this site so it is unrealistic to expect that every off topic question is going to be moderated. We do miss a number of questions from time to time so don't let a lack of moderator action confuse you on this.
As far as a decision close tree, the home page gets populated with questions that have recent activity. Often when an older off topic question gets some activity then it gets bumped where either a moderator sees it and decides to deal with it, or a concerned community member flags it for moderator attention or just votes to close it. There is also a Review feature that higher reputation community members can use to evaluate potentially problematic content and either take action or flag for moderator attention.
Moderators tend to only deal with the flags that come up but we don't necessarily need a flag to take action right away.
