Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 153 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

Yesterday on superuser.com I asked a programmer-productivity question about the existence of a feature in the Eclipse IDE.

Unfortunately, I haven't been able to get a response along the lines of "yes, it exists, here's how" or "no, you can't do that yet". THe question is only one day old, so maybe I'm impatient, but only 7 other users have even looked at the question and the sole answer so far didn't help me.

Eclipse is a programmer's tool, and stackoverflow.com is full of programmers using it. Maybe someone there knows the answer! But I don't want cross-post the question, because as far as I understand, that not how to do things round here.

How do I get my question moved to stackoverflow.com so that more Eclipse users will read my question?

For information, your question was suited for SU, but you can have better answers on Stack Overflow indeed. I have seen this question when you asked it, I'm myself curious how to do that. Voting to migrate it on SO. – Gnoupi Apr 10 '10 at 22:30

Remember that just because you're asking about using a specific program doesn't mean it shouldn't be posted on SO originally. Lots of questions get inappropriately migrated and this is probably why you went to SU first. – Gnome Apr 10 '10 at 22:32

also remember that SU is a bit slower than SO... – quack quixote Apr 10 '10 at 22:47

I just noticed Gnoupi's close vote on this question and migrated it. For future reference, if you decide you asked a question on the wrong site, you're welcome to flag the question for moderator attention and ask us to migrate it for you.

Just checked out the migrated question and already I've got a promising answer. Thanks! – Iain Elder Apr 11 '10 at 19:35

It will be moved to stackoverflow.com if at least 5 moderators deems that it is appropriate for Stack Overflow.
