Alternatively, where could I go in order to have such a question answered?

Firstly, the question is exceedingly broad. We usually deal with specific, conceptual questions here.

Secondly, we just don't do "getting started" questions. A subset of book recommendation questions are allowed, but they need to be reasonably specific too. (See the meta thread on resource recommendations to see how to ask one of those.)

So I'm not really sure if it can be fixed while still being useful to you.

You can try asking around in chat, though.
