Recently, I have seen a couple of questions asking if their specific scenario (such as a character or item) is cliche.
I doubt anyone else will have those exact problems so the answers would only benefit the OP which is frowned upon - we want an archive of knowledge beneficial to everyone.
Are these types of questions off or on topic?
This question is not specifically only about questions like "is ___ cliche" but also any questions similar in that they are only helpful to one, such as "is my story a copy of ___", etc.
Note: I do know that questions with a broader look are OK. Like questions "how to avoid cliches" or questions like this one I asked, where it was less specific to one event or item.
