Some wording we came up with in chat: Questions about reviewing or improving existing, working code and lacking a specific question statement are off-topic for Stack Overflow. You may be able to get help on Code Review. The basis of this wording is to build it around the same wording as the Super User close reason: Questions about general computing ...

Partly based on earlier proposal by EBrown in chat: Without specific programming questions this is off-topic for Stack Overflow. However if your code works as intended, you may get a review and evaluation of it at Code Review. Without **specific programming questions** this is off-topic for Stack Overflow. However if **your code works as intended**, you ...

I have already contacted SE regarding this concern, and this is the exact response I've received from Tim Post, an SE community manager (important points bolded by me): To the extent that it doesn't at all annoy others in chat, we tolerate it. Bots shouldn't send automatic greetings, say inappropriate things (or accept inappropriately named commands) ...

This is an answer that I may want to come back to.... I started it at noon, and now that I look at it, there's a spot above this box that says 'Your Answer'. And, occasionally, above that it pops up and says 'draft saved'...... yea, I typed the above text, and then closed the window, opened it up again, browsed to this post, and voila! there it is again....

I was the last close vote on this question. Does that automatically flag this post when there are no comments? Yes, if a post is closed with no comments (deleted ones count as none), Community ♦ will raise this autoflag, but only while the site is in beta (it then gets disabled for good). This happens in any such situation, even when a ♦ moderator closes a ...

No, it's not ok. Yes, it would be bad manners. On top of that, it would be quite an accomplishment to phrase a question such that it's on-topic and well-received both here and on Stack Overflow. Please see our FAQ on the differences. I understand your frustration. You have 3 questions on the site, some of them quite old, yet no answers. Perhaps our FAQ on ...

This MSO post explains the community bulletin. Below refers to how the entries are populated: Moderators and select Stack Exchange employees can add new events from the Mod Links menu, giving each entry a title and beginning and ending date & time. Each entry must be linked to a Stack Exchange property (a Stack Exchange main site or meta post, ...

This is a wiki question. 10 edits by the author or edits from 5 different users can turn a question into a wiki question. Only a ♦ moderator can manually turn a question into a wiki. That helps in more people getting interested in making the question better. If it is community wiki, then nobody receives rep and everyone starts contributing without ...

I think you should be focusing on closing questions, not migrating them. Stack Overflow has a very poor history of successful question migrations (especially to Programmers); that's why the process is intentionally difficult. A bot called Duga captures suggestions for migration in the question comments for both Programmers and Code Review; I will let the ...

While I would normally like the idea of reusing existing components, I'm not sure it's appropriate here. Code Review is different from Stack Overflow and our questions are constructed differently. How are Stack Overflow and Code Review different? Stack Overflow, like most Stack Exchange sites, favors questions with general application. So it wants ...
