This site used to be a good, safe place to get help on algorithms. Indeed, I would consider it one of the primary purposes of the site. It is prominently listed in our help center and tour. It's probably our biggest differentiator from StackOverflow or Code Review.
Yet, more and more, I see questions asking for help on algorithms being closed or migrated. Like Image color/grayscale classification, which asked for help with an image classification algorithm, or https://softwareengineering.stackexchange.com/questions/313167/pizza-hut-math-problem-1-in-haskell, which was asking for help finding a more efficient algorithm on a puzzle problem.
Did people just forget that algorithms is what this site is largely about? Are people assuming if a question includes a bit of code, or mentions difficulty with a specific language, it can't possibly be asking about an algorithm? What's going on here?
