User vartec instructed me in the comment section to post here my question on the migration of my question from SO to Programmer.
This is the text he.she asked me to remove:
I am absolutely fine (even happy indeed!) with my question being migrated (I myself thought this was a more appropriate forum), yet I am curious to know what was the logic in migrating it as information collected from SO and Programmer's FAQ seemed to indicate differently (see my note at the bottom of the question on why I posted on SO).
The original note - now removed - was this one:
A note on why this question is posted here. First and foremost: I have great consideration for SO members. I truly wanted their opinion and not the one of some other programming forum.
That said, I am perfectly aware this is a subjective question and doesn't relate to code or programming directly. I initially thought the right forum would have been programmers, but their FAQ seem to indicate otherwise. On the contrary SO FAQ say:
We feel the best Stack Overflow questions have a bit of source code in them, but if your question generally covers [...] matters that are unique to the programming profession [...] then you’re in the right place to ask your question!
This SO blog post was also somehow a reference point I used before posting.
So here I am. I am not complaining, I'm just happy with that, but I would like to understand better why it was decided to migrate it.
