So... I don't know anymore. To adress this question by closenotc We seem to be getting an unusual number of low quality posts, I agree that there is a many low quality posts.

I'm writing this here because I'd like to know what to do with this type of question. Is it ok or is it too broad for our community? Because, I don't want to answer on this question because it's too broad for me.

I'd like to discuss this a little bit, thanks

    How is it broad? Broad means that an answer for it wouldn't fit in the format of the site. If the answer would require more than five paragraphs, it is too broad. If there are entire books written to answer the question, it is too broad. Too broad can also be somebody asking a laundry list of questions where each question would be better asked alone. – Stephen Ostermiller Sep 13 '16 at 12:54
  • So, I can answer him just "YES." and that's it? – Josip Ivic Sep 13 '16 at 12:55

    "YES" is not a high quality answer. A high quality answer says "why" and gives evidence or references. – Stephen Ostermiller Sep 13 '16 at 12:57
  • This is question for Web Applications SE in my opinion. – Josip Ivic Sep 13 '16 at 12:58
  • But this is question like... "can I type a web adress without www?" – Josip Ivic Sep 13 '16 at 12:58
  • For the sake of discussion. Let's say I ask this question because there's no question like that here. Would it be concidered too broad? – Josip Ivic Sep 13 '16 at 13:00
  • Web applications could be a fit, but they typically migrate questions about tools for webmasters here. We have lots of questions about AdSense and DFP. Those questions fit perfectly fine here. – Stephen Ostermiller Sep 13 '16 at 13:01
  • Even for a question like "can I type a web adress without www?", "YES" is a poor quality answer. It would be good to explain how redirects work. It would be good to explain that many browsers add the "www" for you. It would be good to explain that there are some cases in which omitting the "www" might not work. – Stephen Ostermiller Sep 13 '16 at 13:02
  • Ok. Thank you again for clarification Stephen. I just didn't know what to do with this type of questions, so it's better to ask here what's with that. – Josip Ivic Sep 13 '16 at 13:33

If there are no questions like it here, it is potentially "off-topic" as opposed to "too broad". Contrarily, having many like questions is evidence that it is "on-topic". If there are old questions that would now be considered off-topic, moderators can lock them for historical significance to indicate they should no longer be used as evidence that like questions belong.

As for the specific question you point out, it certainly needs some edits. The grammar is poor. However, it does not appear to me to be either too broad, or off-topic.
