In general, many questions we get asking for resources tend to degrade into what we call "polls". The problem generally manifests in the form of an overly broad question, or one where there's a hidden problem that the asker doesn't disclose.
While the answers may help the asker, there's a feeling that something is missing, and what's missing is the opportunity for our community of experts to weigh in with solutions based on their numerous experiences. Questions simply asking for resources treat our community as a simple proxy to information already posted elsewhere, instead of as the experts they are.
Moreover, these list-oriented questions tend to attract a lot of low quality posts, as well as answers that don't take into account the full problem. In short, they lessen the chance that you as an asker get the answers to the real, underlying problem.
Instead, tell us about the real, actual problem you're facing. Include plenty of details. Tell us what you've tried or are thinking of trying and why that didn't work. Including our community in the details of the problem helps bring us closer to it and increases the likelihood that you'll get the best possible answers to your question.
Of course, it may still be okay to ask for some extraneous resources. In fact, our back it up rule strongly encourages it. Including qualified research on top of an already well thought answer helps add authority to that answer and helps demonstrate that it is in fact a correct answer. Just be sure to also give us an opportunity to expand that research by analyzing your problem, which most likely will be different than some cookie-cutter cut-and-paste solution on the Internet.
