I purposely post some questions which may skirt the realm of on-topic but are still related to design. This is done intentionally to offer other alternatives to "My Adobe isn't working" questions.
Face it, probably +80% of the questions on GD.SE are software questions. I see no harm and only added value in questions which pose general design related or design business related topics as opposed to software questions. Of course they will be opinion based to a degree. Art is subjective and not quantified by absolutes. If you are looking for absolutes design is the wrong area to be searching. This is not math.se not StackOverflow.se where answers can always be either back or white, right or wrong. Art lives in the 256 levels of grey between black and white, and questions should as well to a degree.
Designers can give back. Designers often do give back. Asking how I, as a designer, could offer my services for the greater good is 100% on-topic in my opinion.
My reputation should have nothing to do with the matter, other than perhaps to offer an insight that I am fully aware of what is and is not permitted on the site. But I am human and not infallible. This is a community site. You are free to disagree, down vote, and vote to close as you did, but that doesn't mean I must agree with you in any way.

I don't know what part of the guidelines you feel addresses my question as "not" permitted all I see are "yes share..."
Some subjective questions are allowed, but “subjective” does not mean “anything goes”. All subjective questions are expected to be constructive. What does that mean? Constructive subjective questions:
inspire answers that explain “why” and “how”
invite sharing experiences over opinions
Great subjective questions invite sharing experiences over opinions. Certainly experiences inform opinions, but the best subjective questions unabashedly and unashamedly prioritize sharing actual experiences over random opinions. It’s more useful to share with us what you’ve done than what you think. Everyone has an opinion. It takes zero effort or imagination to have an opinion about anything and everything. But people who have done things, real things in the world, and have the scars and arrows in their back to show for it — now that’s worth sharing. You should be uniquely qualified to have your opinion based on the specific experiences you had. And you should share those experiences, and more specifically what you learned from your experiences, with us!
