Currently, we don't have a centralized set of rules or general rule that we can refer to if a question is off-topic or not. While we do have the proposed FAQ, not a lot of people link to it or use it when discussing why a question is on- or off-topic. Which is why I'm proposing that we have a site maxim, or general truth, about what is on- and off-topic.
If you remove the words 'Raspberry Pi' from the title and question, would you be able to say for sure that the question is about Raspberry Pi?
The above maxim is what we've discussed and tend to use in the official chat room. We feel like this rule express the general idea of what questions are on- or off-topic about this site. Ergo, I'm proposing that we adopt the above rule as our official maxim in determining whether a question is on- or off-topic.
I feel that if we have an official maxim, that everyone agrees on, confusion between askers and answerers will decrease. Along with the quality of questions being asked improving, as we would have an easy to understand rule for whether a question is a good fit for this site. Community, what is your opinion?
By the way, if you currently aren't a part of our chat room you should really join us. We would be
happy estatic to have you!
