I'm currently designing a database that I wanted to get some input on. It's entirely theoretical at this point, I haven't written a single line of SQL. Would it be acceptable to just post the database diagrams that I've made, pointing out the specific areas that I'm unsure about? If not, what other information should I include?

Regarding the diagrams, is there a prefered way of posting them, or is just uploading a screenshot acceptable?

  • \$\begingroup\$ @200 I did get an answer, and I didn't get any down votes...but I didn't get any up votes either. I'm wondering what the difference between a "good" question and a "great" question is in this context. \$\endgroup\$ Sep 20, 2013 at 13:49

someone has already mentioned that you check out dba.stackexchange.com, which is a good idea.

another place that you might want to try, (please only post on one site in the stack network) would be Programmers.stackexchange

on their about page it says

Algorithm and data structure concepts

which from what you are saying is exactly what you are asking for help with.

I could be totally wrong and you could post there and get a bunch of downvotes, but it seems like a good place to post to me.
