Why can't I ask a question about career progression? I posted a question last night and the question has been removed! I am a little shocked as to why I can't ask a question here? Is it because it's an opinion based and not a factual question?? If that's the case can someone please give me a factual answer as to where I can ask a question to someone who works in software development so I can get an actual answer please!
You can't ask such questions here because we, as a community have decided they we don't want them here. You'd probably have to search around Meta for the discussions, but we call this out in the Help Center's /help/on-topic page.
This is a site that is focused on objective answers to questions that are useful to many people over a long period of time. If you ask a question about your career, the answer likely will help only you, will likely only be valid for the time period shortly after you asked it, and will likely be highly opinionated.
Those factors (the answer is relevant only to you, only for now, and only based on opinion) go against the goals of this site. Because of that, the community has decided that career-related questions are inappropriate.
