Anyone concerned about questions being put on hold on false grounds, see this example: https://webapps.stackexchange.com/questions/99849/is-free-google-app-engine-as-slow-for-everyone-else-too

I put the question on hold. Please see the Help, but specifically:

Don't ask about...

  • Creating or developing a web application

Your other question was marginally okay, because it was asking about how to use the web interface of a particular feature, but a general question about something solely related to writing web applications is specifically off-topic.

Also, in addition to the above, questions of the nature "Is it slow for everyone else?" are not objectively answerable. What is slow? Is there a rhyme and reason for it that it actionable? Is this a temporary issue? Etc.


To address your comment underneath your question, which I did not see until now, running, hosting, and administration of a web application are considered to be part of the development cycle as well, and probably should be added to the close reason.

In a nutshell, though, Web Applications is meant for end-user questions on specific web applications.

  • "I put the question on hold. Please see the Help" Please se my comment telling you that you were wrong: specifically:webapps.stackexchange.com/questions/99849/… "a general question about something solely related to writing web applications is specifically off-topic." This is not such a question. If you think it is, then I suggest you've not read it properly. This is about RUNNING a web application On a web application (the platform). – ChrisJJ Nov 5 '16 at 2:17
  • "Web Applications is meant for end-user questions on specific web applications" You really need to re-read webapps.stackexchange.com/help/on-topic – ChrisJJ Nov 5 '16 at 2:21

    If you are running the web application, you are, by definition, not an "end user," but I'm not going to take any more of my time for a debate in semantics. In the time that you've spent arguing about it, you could have potentially found a better Stack Exchange site for your question and received an answer. – jonsca Nov 5 '16 at 7:31
