This question is clearly not off topic, as it directly pertains to Docker. I think this belongs on here, possibly Server Fault, but there is a tag for it here. I had to remove all references to my use-case because people thought it was off-topic.

    You know, why does the Docker tag even exist? Docker is strictly for environments, not coding. – StackExchange User May 8 '13 at 14:33

It's off-topic because it doesn't directly pertain to programming, just setting up an environment to run a program.

Try on Server Fault, or may be Super User. I'd also recommend not putting "Minecraft" in the title; it can trigger some people the wrong way.

    You'd need to flag it, @IanCarroll, but only after you edit it to make it more substantial and clear what it is that you're doing. Check out the FAQ of the site you wish to migrate to and make sure your post meets the guidelines. This increases the chance the target community will accept your post. – jmort253 May 7 '13 at 2:22
  • @Richard Well, after thinking about it, I have an excuse. You'd most likely need to program something to run in the environment. :P – StackExchange User May 7 '13 at 20:26

    @PeterMortensen Why on earth did you link to wikipedia? – Richard J. Ross III Aug 17 '13 at 2:33
  • Ah, and I'm not the only one who really dislikes the   in things such as Super User, @Peter... :-) – Arjan Aug 17 '13 at 7:46
  • Does this mean that all docker related questions are off-topic? It does not appear as if the community agrees with that, seeing all the docker questions posted and answered on Stackoverflow... – qkrijger Aug 17 '13 at 16:45
  • As a DevOps programmer, this is relevant to what I do, but OK, it doesn't go on StackOverflow. It doesn't seem like it belongs on Super User, since that's for "computer enthusiasts and power users", neither of which apply. Doesn't seem to belong on Server Fault either because that's "for professional system and network administrators", which I'm not either. So where should questions about Docker go? And questions about Puppet or Chef seem like they're in the same category. – Ted M. Young Mar 19 '14 at 20:07
