I have to ask a question about WolframAlpha itself: Can I ask it on the site?, or is it off topic.
According to https://mathematica.stackexchange.com/help/on-topic
Some kinds of questions are considered off-topic:
- Questions on Wolfram Alpha (but questions on using Wolfram Alpha within Mathematica are okay).
And following advice on Sending WolframAlpha questions to WolframCommunity you can try on community.wolfram.com.
