Earlier today moderator Robert Cartaino edited a post, commenting that
Feature requests for CiviCRM are off topic here.
I happen to agree with him, but my question is (especially since he is not a CiviCRM user) how did he know that? Is there a document somewhere that spells out what is on and off topic for this site? If so, shouldn't it be prominently displayed to newcomers? If not, how does anyone know what is on or off topic? Is it simply by following the example of other posts?
Should we be compiling articles of definition?
