If I am interested in asking a question about quining in a specific language, would this be allowed?

I am curious as to whether or not its even possible to write such a quine in a certain language.

    \$\begingroup\$ This would almost certainly be closed as a duplicate of our general quine challenge. The best option to challenge people to write a quine in a specific language is to put a bounty on that challenge. Of course, you don't have the reputation for that yet. Alternatively, you can join us in chat where you'll often find people who would be interested to look into this. (May I ask which language you're thinking about?) \$\endgroup\$ Commented Jun 25, 2016 at 13:30
  • \$\begingroup\$ So I wrote an interpreter to a simple language as a proof of concept. I am interested out of curiosity whether its even possible to write a quine in.@MartinEnder \$\endgroup\$ Commented Jun 27, 2016 at 11:03
  • \$\begingroup\$ I see. Like I said, you might find people in the chat room I linked who would be interested in that. Alternatively there's this room dedicated to programming languages. It's a lot quieter, but a few users check it out regularly, so you'll likely get a response there as well. Alternatively, just answer some basic challenges like Hello World, cat and prime testing with it to get some attention, and maybe someone will have a look at it as well. :) \$\endgroup\$ Commented Jun 27, 2016 at 11:09
