Earlier today I asked the question Can you use DTR and UCP with Docker EE basic? I can see why it'd be a grey area on this site. But without an on topic or don't ask page, I can't see what this site is and is not about.
It was closed earlier today with the close reason:
This question does not appear to be about DevOps, within the scope defined in the help center.
Unfortunately there's no information in the help center. Which has been mentioned before.
The closer and I then had a little discussion:
I'm closing this question because that's a question for a Docker's sales representative and not for a community site. – Tensibai ♦
@Tensibai I'm unsure how this is not for a community site - any user that's used EE basic can answer the above question. – Peilonrayz
There's no value in long term, Docker sales methods and choices may change at any time and this Q/A will be outdated, giving false information. That's not a good fit for a stack exchange site. Moreover, even a basic license user answer could be wrong and the only trustable answer would be from a sales representative. – Tensibai ♦
@Tensibai And it may not change for a couple of years, or ever, which is long-term IMO. I don't see how trustability comes into play on making something on or off topic. I can answer any question without any knowledge. It's an inherent part of SE. That why we have the ability to vote. Also answers go out of date all the time across multiple SE sites, is there a meta you've had here to make any question that may do the same here off-topic? – Peilonrayz
Feel free to raise the point on DevOps Meta , a debate between just two of us on this question comments won't bring something useful I think. – Tensibai♦
I don't agree with Tensibai's reasons:
- Users can answer my question as well as a Docker sales representative.
- Questions become out of date all over SE. Is this a policy you want here?
- Since answers can be wrong, we have the voting system. This means the 'most right' answer raises to the top, and the incorrect ones drop to the negatives.
Should my question be off-topic? If so why?
