Where can I see what kind of questions are or are not relevant on /programmers?

From usability point of view, it's pretty hard to find.

The Help Center has all the information that you need. Specifically, check out these pages:

If you aren't sure if your question is on-topic or if you need help to narrow down the scope or make other improvements, you can always ask here on Meta or in the chat room, The Whiteboard.

    FWIW I feel that Workplace's help/on-topic is laid out better than our, in that items in their "not about" list are conveniently linked to respective detailed explanations on their meta. Ours are plain statements, even though we have an excellent meta FAQ with appropriately structured answers that we could link them at Why was my question closed or down voted?

    @gnat - do you want to write up a suggested edit as a meta question and one of us can make the edit?

    good idea @ChrisF - thanks! I will try to figure how to do such an edit. This will take some time, and I will probably post a draft here at meta for review

  • Pardon me but where is that Help Centre? I can't see any link. Neither from the home page nor from the ask question page. Commented Mar 18, 2015 at 11:05

    @daniel.sedlacek At the header of the page, there's a menu labeled "help". If you click that, there's a link to the Help Center. There's also a "help" link in the footer of the page.
