Right now our on-topic page in the Help Centre is quite sparse and out of date. Let's work together to create a new draft for what is on-topic, taking into account all the decisions that have been made in Meta over the years. The answer is community wiki, and I'll start with what we have already.

Our community previously expressed desire to update the Help Centre, but we never accomplished it. I also asked the community which related sites should we mention. I'm trying again now with a more collaborative approach. Once we've reach some kind of consensus, I'll remove the tag and replace it with as discussed here.


What topics can I ask about here?

Veganism & Vegetarianism Stack Exchange is for questions about vegetarian and vegan lifestyles.

You've come to the right place if you have questions about issues that are unique to vegetarians and vegans, such as:

  • Vegetarian cooking
  • Social challenges and pressures
  • Foods that are traditionally associated with vegetarians
  • Staying healthy while following a meat-free diet
  • Understanding the reasons why people avoid some products

Please look around to see if your question has been asked before. It’s also OK to ask and answer your own question.

If your question is a request for medical advice for you or others, it is off-topic and instead should be directed to a physician. Such questions will be closed here.

If your question is not specifically on-topic for Veganism & Vegetarianism Stack Exchange, it may be on topic for another Stack Exchange site. For example if your question has no direct relation with vegan and vegetarian lifestyles and is about...

If no site currently exists that will accept your question, you may commit to or propose a new site at Area 51, the place where new Stack Exchange communities are democratically created.
