Now that there's a migration path from Stack Overflow to here, should we be more strict about what's off topic?
I know there's this old question about what the FAQ should contain, but the current FAQ doesn't have the what's not allowed list that the Super User one or Web Applications one does.
So, should we have an "off topic" list and what should it contain?
A couple of things spring to mind straight away:
- Office environment questions - such as questions about office chairs and desks. These apply to any office worker and aren't unique to developers.
- Office politics questions - these are clearly going to be very subjective and will usually fall foul of the 6 guidelines for quality subjective questions anyway.
I need to chase up the ability edit the "what's not allowed" section. If it's not going to be forthcoming any time soon I'll go ahead and edit it into the section I can edit.
As all the answers seem to have pretty much universal approval from all those who voted, they're all in.
