We've had the discussion about what is on-/offtopic in chat and different other channels often enough. And we know one thing for sure: Plugin/Theme recommendations are (almost mostly) »shopping questions«. They add exactly no value to the site.
So let's make an update to our FAQ and get rid of the following line.
choice of themes and plugins
- filed under: "What kind of questions can I ask here?"
I thought about replacing it with something, but - to be honest - it's impossible to search through plugin-recommendation and theme-recommendation and finding something actually useful or worth to mention.
As last note: If we decide that we get this out of our FAQ, we also need to know what to do with all those questions under those tags as well as those filed under hosting-recommendation. We currently got 478 questions for plugins, 24 for themes and 14 for hosting.
