Here's a HTML/CSS question. It looks like exactly the sort of thing we traditionally shunt over to stackoverflow.com, and I voted to close for that reason. But I'm having second thoughts.
- It seems more basic than most stackoverflow questions. Does stackoverflow still accept questions like this?
- I know lots of designers who'd find it interesting, and it's got a pile of answers
- It seems like a classic example of the kind of thing where a developer would groan that it's basic-level stuff, and a designer would struggle to figure it out (been there myself) because things like CSS positioning tend not be explained clearly.
Maybe this is the best place for questions that are essentially "I want to make X design but I can't figure out how to do Y in HTML/CSS"?
Then again, we don't want there to be multiple competing sites on the same network doing overlapping types of questions. And maybe it'd look off-puttingly out of place to most designers (the majority don't code).
If we don't want questions like this, where should they go? Someone mentioned stackoverflow.com and someone else mentioned webmasters.SE.
I don't know which (if either) is most suitable. If we're going to forward questions like this on, we should know and be consistent about where we're sending them.
EDIT: Bumping because we just had another of these that turned into a big debate in the comments section... we need a clear line here and a clear reason why: How to keep website divs in place?, image link for those without enough reputation to see it: http://i.stack.imgur.com/49eGz.png
