Based on the FAQ, I know I should limit my questions to specific challenges that have an "objective winning criterion." This leads me to assume that questions like those I'm asking about are not.
However, the simple algorithm I'm attempting to golf (a weasel program) depends on several pseudo-random steps, it's (pseudo)-non-deterministic. Simply posing it as a challenge seems like a problem because although I could specify the seed I used when I coded it in the original language (Python), I imagine that will still cause the results to differ between languages that use different pseudo-random algorithms.
If I just pose the question as "how can I further golf this program?" and provide my working code in its current state, is that acceptable, or is this more on-topic for Stack Overflow? I assumed that if I posted a question related to code-golf there, it would be migrated over here anyway, but the FAQ here leaves me uncertain. I have read the Python tips question as well.
Perhaps it's not on topic on any SE site, which is also acceptable.
