Is it ok to ask for opinions and corrections on the very specific architecture you've designed for a game, posting class diagrams and other detailed information?

I was thinking that perhaps questions that are too specific may not be very useful for the community.

If that is so, what other sites do you suggest for that?

https://codereview.stackexchange.com/ is close, but the FAQ says no "Higher-level architecture and design of software systems." But they do allow "Best practices and design pattern usage in your code."

So no architecture questions, but you could post specific sections of code for review - and might get refactoring or architectural suggestions in return. :)

I'll defer to the faq.

avoid asking subjective questions where …

  • there is no actual problem to be solved: “I’m curious if other people feel like I do.”
  • we are being asked an open-ended, hypothetical question: “What if ______ happened?”

    \$\begingroup\$ Well from my POV you want to make those mistakes since that's how you learn. From the stackexchange POV, if you aren't "solving a problem" then it isn't the right place for it. Trying to avoid future problems isn't solving a problem. \$\endgroup\$ – Tetrad Sep 2 '11 at 13:58
