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. Jul 21, 2010 at 18:23
  • ok, thank you. It's what made sense to me but didn't want to inadvertently transgress current practice. Jul 21, 2010 at 19:12
  • @mattwilkie That was very thoughtful of you to ask, and it was a good question. : )
