It would be nice to have the option to migrate questions from SO to gamedev as well, if the programming question is very related to game programming.
What is meta?
- Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
- The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
- Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates
then the question is not off-topic for Stack Overflow.
You can leave a comment suggesting that it might be better served on GameDev. If the OP agrees, you can flag it for moderator attention and we'll migrate it. I just don't want to force programming related questions off of Stack Overflow if that's where the author wants them.
There's a limit of 5 migration paths. As all are currently filled you'd have to come up with a compelling reason why Game Development should replace one of them.
Read this answer: http://meta.gamedev.stackexchange.com/a/14/11826 That's why. The OP will have the benefit of knowing a most appropriate answer.
Sure that a programmer should know how to answer some questions, but a game programmer should know better, as it may already have tested the answer on various real world situations, in his own games.
We on GD.SE suffer a lot from cross-posting, when the user here on SO get tired of waiting for an answer, or get the Q migrated, and then cross-post. That doesn't benefit the community.
