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 would like to ask for advice about how a question like that should be handled.

  1. The question asked is clearly on topic for SO.
  2. The rationale for asking the question is less on topic for SO.
  3. Many answers address the question in a perfectly on topic way.
  4. However, the most upvoted answer, and the one I personnally think is the most helpful one (given the rationale), would be a better fit for programmers.stackexchange rather than SO.

How can we handle such a case? Moving it to programmers.stackexchange would be awkward because of points (1) and (3)

Does it matter?

It was asked here, leave it here. There is overlapping and grey areas between two different websites, no need to think too much about what to do in these cases, just leave the question on the website it was asked.

It doesn't necessarily matter - just thought I would ask. :) – Jean Hominal Oct 26 '10 at 9:56
