Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 155 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 am referring to Replacing drupal registration and login with facebook login that has been closed as off-topic. What is the rationale behind that?

  • The question is about developing, as stated in the first lines
  • The OP explains what he already tried
  • The OP describes what he is not able to do

The question is probably a not good question, but from this to defining it off-topic there is quite a difference. The message given to the OP, when saying the question is off-topic, is that he should not ask questions about Drupal development on Stack Overflow, while the user can find many questions about that on the same site.

Development questions about Drupal are still on-topic on Stack Overflow. – kiamlaluno Dec 7 '11 at 18:03

i'm not against them, but I think some people could consider that they are off topic just because we have drupal.SE – igor milla Dec 7 '11 at 18:07

I originally closed it as off-topic pending a request to be migrated over to the Drupal StackExchange site.

As per the Drupal StackExchange site FAQ section "What kind of questions can I ask here?", this falls under the following point:

  • Drupal development/theming how-tos

That said, your points about the question's legitimacy on SO are valid (it's on-topic on SO and on Drupal) so I've reopened it, but left it open to migration to the Drupal site.
