Can a question such as below be on topic ? If it is off topic, why is it off topic ? And how should I improve it to make it on topic ?

I'm curious about finding plugins used by developers who write code using vim. I'm interested in c++ related plugins only, can I get a list of suggestions ?

  • "how should I improve it to make it on topic?" -> Your example question is not just asking for plugins, it's also very broad & unspecific; is something like surround.vim "C++ related"? And what about Syntastic? Or indentline? A good question should state a specific problem you're having. You can browse the filetype-c++ tag for some inspiration. May 26, 2015 at 21:44
  • @Carpetsmoker couldn't find the original question when I searched, thanks for the suggestion.
