Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I asked on Stack Overflow a question about "How do I find on the Internet hits for a word with a dash in the middle?". The question got delete. I assume because it was regarded as off-topic. On which Stack Exchange site should a Google query question like "How do I find on the Internet hits for a word with a dash in the middle?" get asked? (this question is despite its easy appearance not trivial.)

I'm removing the second part of the question because it is covered in the faq:… – Yi Jiang Nov 30 '11 at 10:48
You can't see deleted questions until you have 10K reputation - but you're right, it was closed as Off Topic then got deleted. – Shadow Wizard Nov 30 '11 at 13:41
Found the question on google cache! Seems to be the only way for me to see my own question again. – halloleo Dec 1 '11 at 0:30

I think your question would be on-topic on Web Applications.SE. From their FAQ:

  • Using Gmail, Facebook, Twitter, Google, or any other website which behaves like an application

It might even be a duplicate of How can I search for a keyword with special characters in Google Search?

Thanks for this. Have asked the question there (…), because I don't think it is a duplicate of the above mentioned older question. – halloleo Dec 1 '11 at 0:51
