Questions asking for specific resources are generally off-topic on StackExchange sites for various reasons:
- No definitive list is possible, you can always add one more resource
- Answers are often subjective, which resources do you include or not?
- These kind of questions tend to attract spam answers.
- Internet resources often become old/obsolete rather fast (broken links).
Despite this, several SE sites do have special community-wiki resource questions and answers. Some examples are:
We recently discussed in chat whether resource questions would also be a good idea for Sustainable Living. We could create one or more posts with important (influential) books, courses, apps and tools on specific sustainability topics. Obviously these questions have to be carefully monitored and moderated and will be made community-wiki. This means that you'll need at least 100 rep to contribute and no one gets any reputation for posting questions or answers.
What do you think? Should we allow community-wiki resource questions on this site and if so in what form? Do we want this on the main site or on meta? Should it be one single question with each answer addressing a different resource type or specific topic, or do we create a new question and answer for each resource type/topic?
BTW, we already have a few tag wikis that contain resources lists, so another option is to just stick with that (and take their rather low visibility for granted). Some examples:
- List of online carbon footprint calculators in https://sustainability.stackexchange.com/tags/carbon-footprint/info
- List of online ecological footprint calculators in https://sustainability.stackexchange.com/tags/ecological-footprint/info
- List of LCA software, databases and books in https://sustainability.stackexchange.com/tags/life-cycle-analysis/info
Note that this topic has been discussed before in this old meta question about asking for books.
