What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 138 Stack Exchange communities.

http://webapps.stackexchange.com/ is intended for "users of web applications", while stackoverflow.com is intended for "professional and enthusiast programmers." If I want to post a question about MediaWiki syntax (i. e., the syntax for creating templates), would it be better to post the question on http://stackoverflow.com or on http://webapps.stackexchange.com/?

The question can be found here: Highlight the text before a Wikipedia template

It's not easy to decide which of the two sites would be a better fit for this question - is wiki markup considered relevant on Stack Overflow? –  Anderson Green Jan 31 '13 at 2:56
Looks like only 4 of 63 are closed on webapps.stackexchange.com/questions/tagged/mediawiki –  random Jan 31 '13 at 3:21
@random The vast majority of these questions aren't about wiki markup, though. Would questions about wiki markup be considered relevant on either Stack Overflow or webapps.stackexchange.com? –  Anderson Green Jan 31 '13 at 3:56
