The current What topics can I ask about here? page is lacking.

Magento Stack Exchange is for users of and developers working with the Magento e-Commerce platform.

There have been several discussions about what is on-topic on meta, but no action has been taken on the page. I don't know how many people actually read before posting :/, but for the people who do wish to join the community and contribute to magento.stackexchange it may be helpful to point to what is and isn't an acceptable question.

Of course writing our own would be best, but at the very least, we could copy a bit from SO:

the best [Magento] questions have a bit of source code in them, but if your question generally covers...

  • a specific [Magento] programming problem
  • a software algorithm
  • [Magento extensions or] tools [which are free or] commonly used by programmers
  • practical, answerable problems that are unique to [Magento] software development

... then you’re in the right place to ask your question!

The extensions or tools bullet will confuse people, so it may need additional verbiage like "- This is not a support forum for Module XYZ. Do not assume that anybody but you owns/uses your module, so do you research in debugging the module."
