This question might be weird, I wouldn't feel bad if it is closed.
I know that MathOverflow is for mathematicians and math StackExchange for people studying math at any level. But questions like "How is this theorem of mine?" or "Please review this article" will get closed immediately. I don't think so, but is there a StackExchange site that answers these types of questions? If not a StackExchange site, is there any trusted site for this purpose?

It sounds like a natural demand. I'm not aware of its existence at the moment. Journals (not colleagues) have this role of reviewing, but the idea (public posting and reviewing) would be an interesting alternative.

There is a practical difficulty. From my observation so far, the majority the posts appearing and which are (explicitly or in disguise) reviewing requests, are asking if some bunch of computation can be a useful approach, or even a proof, to the Riemann hypothesis, Collatz conjecture, factorization of large integers, etc. In remaining cases, these are often long disorganized sequences of ideas and computations, more or less hard to decipher.

Hence, a site which would do this without strict moderation would be overwhelmed with low-quality requests (and hence not very attractive to the research community). Designing such a site with adequate moderation is an interesting idea and we can hope it will exist at some point.
