This question already has an answer here:
We are getting many off-topic / implementation and coding kind questions where askers appear to be aware of Stack Overflow (at 10m questions over there, who isn't) but for various reasons seem to suspect that their questions won't be well received there.
This problem seems to be relatively new. In the past, Stack Overflow was lenient about question quality and askers didn't tend to bother worrying if their quality is okay. Things seem to have changed after SE Quality Project features were rolled out at Stack Overflow and some of those who would previously ask over there, started looking to try their luck elsewhere.
Granted, they usually don't mention using Programmers as a proxy for Stack Overflow (they maybe think it's not important) but sometimes, it leaks through:
I want ask for StackOverflow but i cant becouse my one post have -3...
Can we do something to prevent... lifehacks like above from becoming popular?
Some folks (probably with Math.SE background) even invent funny theories for why they avoid Stack Overflow: 'my friends told me that "stack exchange" is undergraduate or master level, and "stack overflow" is PhD or research level. I think my question is very basic, so I asked here' (I think these theories became popular after Stack Overflow started burying very low quality questions in Triage, which cut their chances to get answers, even as hints in comments.)
Stack Overflow is much larger than us, they get about 8K questions a day average. Even amount of questions they close (800 a day) is 20 times more than total questions we get (less than 50).
Site like ours can be totally flooded by "Stack Overflow learning and training" kind attempts if this becomes widespread. I would not want this to happen. I come here to learn and contribute to Programmers topics, not to guide those who are scared or blocked by Stack Overflow.
