Recently, I have noticed several topics being moved from Stack Overflow to Super User that are off-topic.
According to the FAQ:
and it is not about …
- videogames or consoles
- websites or web services like Facebook, Twitter, and WordPress
- electronic devices, media players, cell phones or smart phones, except insofar as they interface with your computer
However, questions related to websites and services as well as mobile devices are occasionally being moved from Stack Overflow to Super User, only to be closed by moderators several minutes to several hours later.
One recent example of such a question being moved is this question. The question is off-topic because the question concerns changing the settings on a smart phone. Even if one were to argue that this falls under the "insofar as they interface with your computer" clause, the phone is interfacing with a web service, not software on the user's computer.
Is there anything that can be done about these off-topic questions being moved to Super User?
This Meta Stack Overflow question addresses a similar issue with high-reputation users failing to recognize off-topic posting. Could such an approach be taken to help stop Stack Overflow's moderators from moving off-topic questions?
