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 have some questions which I could really use answers to now, that the best place to ask would be area51 Stack GIS, which is not yet live. Is it okay to ask them now on Stack Overflow or Super User in the hopes they might generate an early answer I can use now, and then tag them for moving when GIS does open up?

IMO the best recourse of action is to continue to ask them at Stack Overflow until the site is live. While the site is fully committed, Area51 is still in Beta, and it might be a little while before Stack GIS becomes a live site.

Besides, as you said, you could really use answers now. So, ask away! (On StackOverflow)

This sounds like a reasonable guideline. You have to use the network as it exists now. Not as someone proposes it to be in the future. Otherwise, we'll never get anything done. – Robert Cartaino Jul 21 '10 at 18:23
ok, thank you. It's what made sense to me but didn't want to inadvertently transgress current practice. – matt wilkie Jul 21 '10 at 19:12
@mattwilkie That was very thoughtful of you to ask, and it was a good question. : ) – rlb.usa Jul 21 '10 at 20:09
