The help/on-topic page needs some love. Right now it consists of a total of one sentence of guidance on what is on-topic:

"Signal Processing Stack Exchange is for practitioners of the art and science of signal, image and video processing."

I'm confident this community can do better than that. Please suggest helpful text to further elaborate what topics are and aren't appropriate on this site, so that the help center page can be updated.

Definitely! There has been some discussion in the teacher's lounge (all-mod chat room) about this: there is zero information available to mods from other SE sites to say what is on-topic for SP.SE. A suggested update:

What topics can I ask about here?


Please note: this post is marked as community wiki, so please edit it to add / remove / correct / improve it!

    $\begingroup$ I don't have a clarifying edit, but: I feel that "algorithm debugging questions" should exclude programming questions (which can be asked e.g. on SO); this is not for "why does my code not work", but for "the signal my algorithm produces doesn't match my mathematical expectations, I know how to code, so what's wrong about the algorithm (not so much the code implementation of that)?" $\endgroup$ – Marcus Müller Oct 15 '16 at 11:16
  • $\begingroup$ @MarcusMüller OK! I added some text. Let me know if that helps. $\endgroup$ – Peter K. Oct 15 '16 at 15:41

  • $\begingroup$ I dared to add image and video examples to "practice questions" (to alter the pure signal aspect). I added "conceptual questions" too, and I am considering an environmental software bullet: "Should I use Python, Julia or Cobol for online speech processing on a FPGA?" (the question does not exist). Tell me what sounds valid or not! $\endgroup$ – Laurent Duval Oct 16 '16 at 18:05

    $\begingroup$ @LaurentDuval How daring of you! :-) Thanks! I'll add that to the mix. $\endgroup$ – Peter K. Oct 16 '16 at 20:21
