Yesterday on superuser.com I asked a programmer-productivity question about the existence of a feature in the Eclipse IDE.

Unfortunately, I haven't been able to get a response along the lines of "yes, it exists, here's how" or "no, you can't do that yet". THe question is only one day old, so maybe I'm impatient, but only 7 other users have even looked at the question and the sole answer so far didn't help me.

Eclipse is a programmer's tool, and stackoverflow.com is full of programmers using it. Maybe someone there knows the answer! But I don't want cross-post the question, because as far as I understand, that not how to do things round here.

How do I get my question moved to stackoverflow.com so that more Eclipse users will read my question?

  • For information, your question was suited for SU, but you can have better answers on Stack Overflow indeed. I have seen this question when you asked it, I'm myself curious how to do that. Voting to migrate it on SO. – Gnoupi Apr 10 '10 at 22:30

    Remember that just because you're asking about using a specific program doesn't mean it shouldn't be posted on SO originally. Lots of questions get inappropriately migrated and this is probably why you went to SU first. – Gnome Apr 10 '10 at 22:32

    also remember that SU is a bit slower than SO... – quack quixote Apr 10 '10 at 22:47

I just noticed Gnoupi's close vote on this question and migrated it. For future reference, if you decide you asked a question on the wrong site, you're welcome to flag the question for moderator attention and ask us to migrate it for you.

  • Just checked out the migrated question and already I've got a promising answer. Thanks! – Iain Samuel McLean Elder Apr 11 '10 at 19:35

It will be moved to stackoverflow.com if at least 5 moderators deems that it is appropriate for Stack Overflow.
