I know that the various stackexchange sites are primarily Q&A, and any subjective questions should be kept in chat. But the EE stackexchange chat is kind of dead, and I have some questions on why people use EE a certain way (solely to further my own learning - compare and contrast with how I've learned to do things / done things for years.) Is there another place I could ask these, besides in chat?
For instance: * I wanted to ask about why people build templates with so many levels of includes (an embed within another embed within a template, for example) instead of flattening things out a bit. * I wanted to ask why people use things like SEO Lite or NSM Meta, instead of creating the keyword and description variables for each channel
I suspect that the answer to most of my questions is going to boil down to "preference" or "workstyle", but I'm honestly interested in discussing the pros and cons of various techniques, server load versus ease of maintenance, and I'm not entirely sure if EE.SE.com has a place to do that that actually gets some visits.
