This question: Hooked keyboard duplicating input (c# / xna) has a very good accepted answer, which provides a better solution than one generally given online when searching.

Should it be moved to gamedev.stackexchange.com since it's a better fit and people might be more likely to come across it? Or should it not be moved because, although the OP came looking for a solution because of doing game development in the problem and solution isn't related to game development directly.

I don't think this should be migrated at all. It's on-topic for Stack Overflow, and that's where I'd go to look for the answer. (That, of course, raises the question of what Game Dev is for... I don't know the answer.) –  Cody Gray Aug 28 '11 at 0:53

Where the question is clearly off topic for the current site then it should be either migrated or closed. Only migrate if it's a) a good question and b) clearly on topic for the target site.

An example would be a question about iPhones on Super User. This is off-topic there and should be migrated to the Apple site.

Where the the question is on topic for the current site then it should remain where it is if it has an accepted answer. It serves no one to have the question migrated. You should consider migration if it has no answers or not many good answers.

Game Development is a good example as is a question about a Mac on Super User - it's on topic there but might get better answers on the Apple site.

So to answer this specific question - unless the OP requests it the question should not be migrated.
