the point of meta is that everything that doesn't belong on SFSE
belongs on meta :)
The way I understand it is that I'm now typing on "meta-Salesforce StackExchange", not on "meta-Salesforce".
We should discuss here some moderation policies, solve issues with tags etc. And main site should be for discussing and solving problems around actual Salesforce. Regardless how "meta" these problems may seem ;)
From programmers.stackexchange.com sidebar:
Got a question about the site itself? meta is the place to talk about
things like what questions are appropriate, what tags we should use,
It's a very open ended question that probably should be marked as community wiki (there's no "one correct answer", right?) Not to mention the fact that for example in my workflow diffs are all nice and shiny but WinMerge excels when plugged into TortoiseSVN - answer like that kind of derails the topic.
I'd expect stuff like that either on main site or on StackOverflow itself. Would gain much more visibility, maybe there's an amazing tool we're not aware of because we're mostly focused on Eclipse...
Programmers SE might not appreciate the "traffic" from us ;)
Last quote, I promise ;)
We feel the best Stack Overflow questions have a bit of source code in
them, but if your question generally covers …
a specific programming problem
a software algorithm
software tools commonly used by programmers /* this */
practical, answerable problems that are unique to the programming profession
… then you’re in the right place to ask your question!
