I would like to ask about a military concept developed around 1337 but used to day. Politics.SE rightfully told me off, would it be OK here? MartialArts.SE sounds like a worse fit.

    Its tough to answer this without more specifics. I know we had a well-received question on the French Column, so that was clearly on-topic. But if someone wanted to ask about using that formation today, that would probably be off-topic.

    I know its can be a disappointment, but not every possible question the human mind can conceive has an appropriate SE site to ask it on.

  • @T.E.D. indeed. Thanks for the time! The linked question uses 'did' while mine is composed mostly of 'is defined as'. Definitely not topical here.

    Sometimes theoretical questions can be made into good questions for the WorldBuilding SE site.

    For a moment, I thought you were asking about 1337sp33k. But I agree with @T.E.D. here. Questions need to be asked in a historical context. For example, posting a picture of an unlabeled weapon you saw in a museum and asking what kind of troops carried it is probably fine. Asking about how to use it today to defend against a burglar would not be, and asking about how to incorporate it into a role-playing game would also not be.
