The following question got moved to meta: "Would it be possible to create an open source software library, entirely developed and moderated by an open community?"
It contains the following two sub-questions:
- Has anything like this been attempted before?
- Are there platforms better suited for this?
As neither the main question, nor the sub-question have got anything to do with meta, it evidently got closed here.
I personally find I always take care of explicitly stating the questions I want answered. The title of this question is "Why did this non-meta question get moved to meta?", meaning, that is my question.
They always taught me it is good practice to end an email/letter/question explicitly with the question you want answered. In this case, I'm also interested in the following.
- How could I have better formulated my question(s) so they would have been better understood?
- Could this question please be moved back to programmers where it belongs so I can at least vote to re-open it there? Re-opening it here doesn't make any sense.
Excuse the sarcastic nature of this question, but you might understand I am slightly frustrated with how this question got down voted/closed as I sincerely tried my best to formulate it clearly.
