I was just creating a question about the following on Drupal Answers:
I know this is a general question and there isn't a single correct answer, but I'd like to know the community's general sense.
As the only web developer in my company, as I get requests for increasing our website's functionality and adding on features, I sometimes wonder about the trade-off between too much functionality and 'just the right amount' of functionality.
Are there some vague guidelines or perceived best-practices about how many modules are too many for a small-to-medium company website in Drupal?
If performance is not an issue, are there still some guidelines for what's maintainable and good practice in terms of the website's long-term goals.
Sorry if this is too general. Just wondering what others are thinking...
Before I even saved it, based on the title I gave my post, the system said it was likely to be closed for not being constructive. I understand that, and noticed a couple of similar, though slightly different questions that had been closed in the past.
Is there a place anywhere on Stack Exchange where discussions about trends and practices can take place (vs. just programming questions)? If not, where are folks discussing such topics and would it make sense to have/create a space on Stack Exchange for such discussions?
