What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

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: meta.stackexchange.com/questions/5221/… – 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 (webapps.stackexchange.com/questions/21518/…), because I don't think it is a duplicate of the above mentioned older question. – halloleo Dec 1 '11 at 0:51
