Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 137 Stack Exchange communities.

I have a question regarding Android, which wasn't quite programming related so I posted it over at android.stackexchange.com

But I've discovered the traffic at that site is really slow compared to here and there seems to be a lot more responses to Android related questions here.

Would it be ok to repost the question here or move it here ?

What kind of question is it? –  Pëkka Aug 5 '11 at 11:38
Can someone please explain the 4 down votes for this question? I thought the purpose of this meta site was exactly to clarify these kinds of questions? Should I have not asked this question here ? –  arunkumar Aug 6 '11 at 18:24

This is not a programming question, so no, it would not be appropriate to ask it on Stack Overflow.
(In addition, note that cross-posting questions on multiple sites is strongly discouraged.)

Questions about using (rather than programming) Android mobile phones belong on the Android site. You only asked the question an hour ago—give it a little more time before becoming impatient.

"strongly discouraged" = "gets deleted, and if enough get deleted you'll get permabanned by the system" –  Won't Aug 5 '11 at 13:07

If it's a question about using an Android phone (which it appears to be) then you've posted it in the right place.

If it's a question about programming for an Android phone then Stack Overflow is the correct site.
