If we see a question on Stack Overflow, that is clearly a CS question, how should we deal with it. SHould we answer it there, or direct them here?
I am worried about directing them here because:
- They tend to be simple questions(I can solve them. e.g find the Big-Oh of this or that).
- They may be closed here, e.g as duplicates, asker didn't show effort, homework questions, etc. Some of these may not be questions from which an asker wants to learn CS from, but just to get a useful result.
Considering the above, how do you propose we deal with such questions. If you're against directing them, then I'm up for answering on SO(I need the rep. ;) )
I am not proposing Migration. I am proposing directing the user to CS. Should we do that? If we see a question on computational complexity, Big-Oh algorithms, etc should we direct them to register here on CS and post the question anew. Or just answer them there. Some of the questions might not be good fit here (Like most of the analysis questions would be closed as duplicate of Raphael's FAQ).
