I am modifying an electronic device and am unsure of what a certain type of connector would be called. I want to build a custom wiring harness that will attach to the connector. Is it on-topic to take a picture of the connector and post asking what it might be called and/or how to search for it online to purchase the same connector?
Example question (not my actual one): you took a picture of the plastic four-pin connector that powers an older IDE hard drive. You're looking for the answer "4-pin Molex connector".
