I often have questions about the field of physics itself (as opposed to physics questions). For example questions about the current state of a sub-field of physics, or questions about the implications of experiment results. The latter is especially important to me because my knowledge of physics is focused around classical electromagnetism, so I occasionally am confused about the significance of certain experiments. I am wondering if such questions are considered off-topic, or too opinion-driven to be asked here?
I'd say some, perhaps most, of these questions are physics questions, and thus I'd consider them on topic. Perhaps some other such questions are off topic. I couldn't say without having a better idea of what kinds of questions you're talking about.
Either way, I'd advise you to just ask them, and if they get closed, you'll learn something about what sorts of questions are considered off topic by the community.
