Proposal: Software Usage
Don't think this has been suggested before but:
There should be a StackExchange site dedicated to the help of usage of software. Of course, there would be questions that fit onto some sites (while others not-so).
This would mean that it would be easier for people to ask questions regarding software in one place.
Take for example, the question:
How do I save a file in Brackets?
would be frowned upon in SuperUser and StackOverflow, even though it is about a piece of software that works with web source code. But a question like:
Can I make Brackets treat another file extension as one it is already programmed to recognize? (ie. Treat a .xyz file like a .html file)
would be accepted fine on StackOverflow and maybe SuperUser.
A question, that I've had recently, but not know where to post:
How do I import DoTA 2 assets and run the DoTA 2 map in Source Filmmaker?
It is not about video editing (So video.stackexchange.com isn't an option) and SuperUser/StackOverflow does not allow it/have a tag for it.
A question like:
How do I convert a .obj into a .mdl using Blender?
Would be allowed on the blender.stackexchange.com only because it's asking about the usage of Blender to create new assets for Source Filmmaker.
Or more non-specialized but more commonly-used questions like (for example, using Excel):
How do I merge two cells together?
instead of programming-based questions such as:
How do I create a macro that automatically formats my spreadsheet to look like *this*? <Insert the "this"; what the spreadsheet should look like>
