While some sites have only a few chat rooms, this one has quite a few even excluding those that are for single individuals or discussions moved from comments.

How can I decide which chat room (if any) would be appropriate for mentioning my question Can Lissajous orbits have stable/unstable manifolds? which while on a different site, is math-based?

I'm not a mathematician, so I don't have any intuition into which topic or category of mathematics this would fall under, so I can't even venture a guess.

    $\begingroup$ I don't think that you can go wrong by asking in Mathematics. If there is a better place, the folk there might be able to help you find it. $\endgroup$ – Xander Henderson Aug 26 '18 at 3:39
  • $\begingroup$ @XanderHenderson done, thanks! Still I'm interested in exploring the more general form of this question. I wonder if an "ask here first" label or even an object at the top of the list of rooms page might be a good idea, so thinking of formulating a general SE meta question, and of course searching for an existing one first. $\endgroup$ – uhoh Aug 26 '18 at 3:44

    $\begingroup$ In case it is helpful, here on meta we have: List of chatrooms. $\endgroup$ – Martin Sleziak Aug 26 '18 at 5:55
  • $\begingroup$ @MartinSleziak excellent, I think that is in fact the answer to this question, shall we just mark this a duplicate of that? Anything that would increase that answer's visibility would be a plus. $\endgroup$ – uhoh Aug 26 '18 at 6:00

    $\begingroup$ I would not be too hasty in closing as a duplicate - I can imagine that somebody posts here some advice about using chat. In my opinion, the two question are not exactly the same, although they are related. But if for some time nobody answers and you still think that closing as a duplicate is the way to go, it can be done. $\endgroup$ – Martin Sleziak Aug 26 '18 at 7:04

    $\begingroup$ Since you mentioned visibility of that post - it is shown among linked questions (in the sidebar on the right) for several questions; at the moment there is 18 of them. I'd say that this adds to a visibility of that post. $\endgroup$ – Martin Sleziak Aug 26 '18 at 7:06
