What is on topic for gear recommendations?
Since this site is going to have a Gear Recommendations category, I would like to know what types of questions would be considered on-topic.
These are types I can think of,
- Where can I buy this particular camera?
- Is this particular model a good camera?
- Is this camera at this price a good deal?
- Is this camera selling company reputable or am I going to end up being scammed?
- Should I buy camera X or camera Y?
- These are the features I am looking for and this is my budget, can you recommend a camera for me?
- I am selling this type of camera, how much is it worth and where should I sell it?
Those are all types of questions I see on Reddit, SE questions would be more like,
- What features should I look for in a camera? (With answers of specific cameras to buy and complaints that people shouldn't edit questions to make them on topic before closing them because they might go out of date while simultaneously ensuring that when they do go out of date they can't be updated.)
I think that even if not all of those questions are on topic, there has to be a better way of doing in then how SE did it.
