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 want to ask a question about a blogging software for our dev team. Should it go to:

  • StackOverflow because the blogging software will be used as part of our development process?
  • ServerFault as this is about the server-side software?
  • SuperUser as blogging engines are standard applications in many ways?

I think it is partly appropriate for all 3 sites, and partly inappropriate at the same time. You could argue that it depends on the exact character of the question and you'd be right but still, there are quite a few cases where the question is partly appropriate for at least 2 of the sites. How should I handle such questions?

(Personally, I find this overlap unpleasant. It "makes me think" which is not good.)

Certainly related. Also a candidate for the Stack Exchange 2.0 - – ChrisF May 27 '10 at 10:56

There's no good place for that topic right now.

But there might be.. soon-ish.

As long as there is a single form that will automatically decide from the contents of the question where it should go, it's fine with me :) – Borek May 28 '10 at 10:38

You're thinking too much. You're thinking about "blogging questions" generally, while you should be thinking about your specific question in isolation.

Is the question you're asking about writing blogging software? Stack Overflow.

Furthermore, is the question about configuring a common server-side blogging package? Server Fault (I think).

Finally, is the question about blogging in general? GTFO.

@Jeff: You're a pretty weird guy, you know that? – JSONBog May 27 '10 at 11:28
"I think" from your answer: that's exactly the problem. Sometimes, it's not clear where to post the question (far too often for the questions I'd like to ask). – Borek May 27 '10 at 12:42
Where should I post about posts about where posts should do? – Ólafur Waage May 27 '10 at 21:21
