After happily coexisting with many others in the TeX and LaTeX StackExchange I caught myself in need of assistance for a different language than TeX.
Be that as it may, I very forwardly posed my question on StackOverflow, with intended result, my research effort and why the current available knowledge base on google as well as existing StackOverflow questions were inconclusive.
So far I've not had a single person willing to help - merely posing that my question did not adhere to the format and I should probably look elsewhere. After five questions I had the warning pop up that my questions were not of sufficient quality and that I should consider editing existing questions. I used the same format which although not praised until kingdom come on TeX.SE, were accepted as legitimate requests.
This deviates so wildly from the forthcoming atmosphere in TeX.SE that it got me wondering which of these formats was the intended one.
Furthermore, all things considered the format should at least be similar as they serve a similar general purpose - my interpretation of which would be an interactive and growing knowledge base on coding-related questions. (Obviously TeX.SE is slightly broader because it involves code for a very specific purpose, contrarily to the more general approach of StackOverflow.)
If I'm incorrect in these assertions I would also like to know how and where that discrepancy stems from and if its argument can be defended.
