I wrote an article related to a mathematical subtraction equation. My question is, if I post a link to my article and ask for an opinion in regard to my article, does that count as spam?

  • $\begingroup$ @RajivKaipa correct (it has now been migrated) but the OP does not have the 5 reputation necessary to post on Meta. $\endgroup$ – Glorfindel Apr 12 '17 at 7:13

Well, it might not be spam, but consider the following:

  • a question must be answerable without depending on the content found in external links. If the link breaks, the question may not become unclear. So post the relevant content in the question, and link to your article if it provides some extra information.
  • questions asking for opinions are almost always off-topic.

  • $\begingroup$ Even questions on Meta can be off-topic for being primarily opinion-based, but far less likely so than on the main site. $\endgroup$ – Glorfindel Apr 12 '17 at 7:34
