What are some other resources which might be useful for somebody considering asking a MathOverflow question, especially if their question is not quite a perfect fit here?
In asking this, I have several categories of resources in mind, including but not limited to:
Resources for answering questions related to mathematics which are best answered by different communities with non-mathematical expertise. (E.g. Academia Stack Exchange or Computer Science Stack Exchange.)
Other mathematical communities whose expertise may be complementary to that of the community here. (E.g. various discipline-specific mailing lists and discussion boards, or databases such as OEIS.)
As I've stated it, it sounds like I'm asking for an unimaginably comprehensive list of resources for questions related to mathematics — obviously it would be nigh-impossible to actually compile an authoritative answer to the question as I've framed it. But there's a loophole, in that so far as possible I'd like to address each of these categories of mathematical resources via a meta-category of resources, namely:
- Meta-resources: Lists compiled elsewhere on the internet which themselves compile lists of resources of the above types. (E.g. Collecting math websites is an example of a list of mathematics websites compiled on Mathematics Stack Exchange. Useful mathematical fora is another, focused on mathematics forums.)
