I have been thinking about some topics and ideas and I think I have come up with some interesting ideas. Can I ask questions regarding those topics? Note that those questions won't refer to movies, novels or games explicitly.

From the FAQ:

What kind of questions can I ask here?

Science Fiction and Fantasy - Stack Exchange is for questions targeted towards science fiction and fantasy enthusiasts. This includes questions about:

  • Plot, character, or setting explanations
  • Historical or societal context of a work
  • Behind-the-scenes and fandom information
  • Story identification
  • Franchise/series reading or viewing order

Your question here is a little vague, but I'm leaning towards saying it'd be off-topic. Depending on your specific questions, you may find the Writers or Physics StackExchanges to be better suited.

    So the questions that should be asked here must refer to some 'work' if they are to be accepted? – chosentorture Feb 2 '13 at 21:05

    @ChosenTorture I think it'd help if you fleshed out your question a bit. It's unclear if you're asking questions about the writing process, which Writers.SE is better for. We do take questions about genre conventions here, but I don't know if your question is talking about that sort of thing. – user1027 Feb 2 '13 at 21:24
  • @Keen For example, I am trying to construct a futuristic modified totalitarian society and would like to have suggestions about the construct of government that I envision which involves 'AI Bots'. Are such questions acceptable? – chosentorture Feb 2 '13 at 21:37

    No. There's no definitive answer to that question, as you describe it. Something like that would be fine in the chat rooms, but no SE site would deem that as on-topic. – phantom42 Feb 2 '13 at 22:00

    I agree with @phantom42 -- it should be a topic that would be good for Mos Eisley, SFF.SE's chatroom or the Writers.SE chatroom. – Slytherincess Feb 2 '13 at 22:25
  • For some aspects, your questions might be great for WorldBuilding SE. – Dronz Jan 12 '15 at 19:36
