It might just be me, but I believe Meta is experiencing a rise in the amount of questions that should be asked on other Stack Exchange sites. These are the ones I could find just from the last 24 hours, there were probably more:
- http://meta.stackexchange.com/questions/103530/job-and-studies [10k only]
I can understand this problem existing on Stack Overflow, where a question about Apple, Ubuntu or Wordpress might end up and be off topic (I.e. no programming elements). I can also understand the questions on Meta that should be on Stack Overflow, since if you're not clear on what the word
meta means and you ignore every other piece of text, it's not a hard mistake to make. However, of the three questions linked above, one should have been asked on Ubuntu.
Is Meta starting to see a rise in these questions and, if so, is there something we can do beyond flagging them as off topic?
