My understanding of Programmers.SE (as opposed to SO) is that SO is for implementation problems - "I'm trying to do
baz but it isn't working", while Programmers is for whiteboard problems - "I'm starting my project and I'm considering three different ways of doing this (
baz) and I'm not sure which would be best".
Based on that understanding, I feel that my question (which would be about how to best represent some data) would be more on-topic here than on SO. I'm still a little concerned, however, that this might be considered too opinion based or too "bad subjective". Are these questions okay?
I'd be happy to provide some more details as to what my question would look like if that's necessary.
