# Is it ok to ask here if it's alright to ask a particular question in math.SE?

Let $Q$ be a question.

Suppose someone is unsure if $Q$ fits math.SE, and instead of getting negative votes/ $Q$ immediately closed, he decides to ask if it's okay to ask that question, here.

Is this normally accepted (know that if it's not, this question is breaking the rules, hah!)?

• This makes me think we need a meta meta math. – YoTengoUnLCD Feb 19 '16 at 2:45

• If you browse a bit through questions tagged (allowed-questions), you will find many questions like: "Are the questions from this area/of this type allowed on MSE?" As far as I remember, it is much rarer to ask on meta about a specific question, but maybe you can find some such posts. The two questions which are currently tagged allowed-questions+specific-question are somewhat similar, but in those cases, the questions had already been posted (here or on another site) before asking on meta. – Martin Sleziak Feb 19 '16 at 3:18
• Worst case scenario, your question on meta is downvoted, closed and deleted. Unlike main, this carries no negative consequence for you that I know of. – Najib Idrissi Feb 19 '16 at 9:08
• Also, you should have asked if it is appropriate to ask on meta if it's ok to ask here if it's alright to ask a particular question, first. – Najib Idrissi Feb 26 '16 at 14:49
