When you have a Data Science-related question, there are at least 7 relevant StackExchange sites to choose from. So how do you pick the right one?
Yes, for each question you can first ask on Meta (example: What it is the most appropriate Stack Exchange site to ask about ontologies and knowledge bases?), but that's not the best solution.
Can we create a definitive guide (think of a flowchart) that helps to choose the right SE site?
The list of relevant websites:
- StackOverflow (most popular)
- Data Science (current)
- Cross Validated
- Artificial Intelligence
- Computer Science
- Theoretical Computer Science
- Computational Science
I assume that ideally we want to have only 1 correct website per question. All the questions asked on the incorrect websites should be closed/migrated to the correct ones. Otherwise we'll have confusion, duplicate questions and scattered user base. I think that a definitive guide would help both for asking new questions and for migrating the old ones.
