List questions are usually avoided on Stack Exchange (see e.g. this answer on Meta Stack Exchange). However, non-list questions would include every other type of question, and it is not possible to make general statements about every type of question that is not a list question.

Please check the questions tagged , and , and if those questions do not cover what you need to know, ask a more specific question.

    You should use "meta-tag:" instead of "tag:" for tags on meta: on-topic, off-topic. By the way, questions tagged with scope might also be relevant for looking for these discussions.
