I don't want to look too grumpy, but I'd say that a question like «How can I say "what's your name?” in Italian?» does not show even a modicum of attempt to find an answer on one's own. A sentence like this can be found in any elementary phrasebook, online and elsewhere. But, in my attempt to minimise grumpiness, I'd rather have a second (and third and...) opinion.

    I agree. This site is not a free translation service. – martina Jan 28 '15 at 19:50

    That's certainly a troubling question, but more troubling is the fact that it had a score of 5 at time of this comment. Use your downvotes, everyone! – hairboat Jan 28 '15 at 23:12

    In un momento di deficit di domande, come si suol dire, tutto fa brodo. – Elberich Schneider Feb 1 '15 at 18:02

You don't look grumpy, DaG. We've discussed it before here and here and unequivocally decided that such questions are off-topic.

I edited also our "on-topic" help page, clarifying the issue once and for all. Please feel free to edit or suggest other edits to that page.
