There is a plethora of questions here (in meta) that involve what to do about questions involving "Software recommendations". None of them seem to mention the proposal for the Software Recommendations site in the Area51 staging zone. (currently in definition stage)
When these posts are found on superuser they are closed and a message is typically presented to help the user understand why:
"Questions seeking product, service, or learning material recommendations are off-topic because they tend to become obsolete quickly. Instead, describe your situation and the specific problem you're trying to solve. Here are a few suggestions on how to properly ask this type of question."
Perhaps this message is not universal, but is created each time a question is closed? - either way, my question is the same:
Should a reference to this proposed "Software recommendations" site be included in such a message? (therefore helping users to know where to go for these kinds of questions?)
