This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

  • Related discussion: Should we have a “not subjective enough” close reason? – user8 Sep 1 '10 at 20:59
  • Do you mean migrating subjective questions from StackOverflow or objective ones to it? – Gelatin Sep 1 '10 at 21:22
  • @Simon Brown: too objective for us and appropriate for they, of course. – Maxim Popravko Sep 1 '10 at 21:58
  • And what about the reverse? Migrating questions from SO to us? – Walter Sep 7 '10 at 16:16
  • Sorry, I didn't see that it was asked in its own question... – Walter Sep 7 '10 at 16:18

IMHO, if most of the users on programmers are also on SO, AND if Jeff&co. are ok, there would be no problem in migrating questions to stackoverflow.

I would really like this, along with all the questions being reopened. This way discussion that was halted because of the close could restart, and new answers could flow in for the single "Don't ask here, ask (obscure site)" type answer to the question.

I see two issues though

  • The amount of questions that could be moved is immense. I haven't done any statistics, but I put it in the hundreds
  • What about old questions? Moving a question asked and closed in 08 and reopening here would make little sense.
  • Moving by batch processes would get false positives.

    I think he was talking about the opposite, migrating questions from programmers to stackoverflow – Federico klez Culloca Sep 1 '10 at 21:56
  • and moreover, it would be nice to have some community based and programmatically supported mechanism to migrate questions across the whole SO sites family. – Maxim Popravko Sep 1 '10 at 22:02
  • @Max: you mean the SE sites family, don't you? – Wizard79 Sep 1 '10 at 22:07
  • @Lorenzo: As you wish:) – Maxim Popravko Sep 1 '10 at 22:24
