which is considered as Basic SQL :

I have read the help of the site mainly this: https://dba.stackexchange.com/help/on-topic

and it is not clear to me: can they exemplify?

for example I want to ask a question about a query that I really consider to be basic, but I am almost sure that the solution is using joins;


the use of joins at what level is considered for the community of database experts? And if it can be optimized by an advanced function, can it be considered a good question to be published on the site?

Please don't hesitate to post your question, taking into account other guidelines. The worst that can happen is that it'll be soon closed as "too localised" or "off-topic"; this will be the signal that the crowd here finds it too basic.

You can then take your, already well-prepared, question to Stack Overflow.
