So I had asked this question, not a particularly great question but certainly about web design/development.
Now that it has been migritad to SO, I am left wondering why? What is it that I'm not getting about webmaster's?
The real issue I have, and why I even put up such a basic question there, without these I don't see Webmaster's community being viable or remotely as useful to the general user
It's not supposed to be useful to "the general user", it's supposed to be useful to professionals who operate websites as a part of their job.
Programming is too low-level; this site operates at a higher level, the whole website(s).
If your question generally covers the operation of websites which you control, then you’re in the right place to ask your question!
Given that webmasters are generally also expected to know a bit of HTML/CSS, the FAQ's meaning is often contested one way or another.
The most recent discussion - If all SysAdmin questions get punted to ServerFault, and all HTML/CSS are 'programming' - what is left for ProWebmasters? - here on meta is still pending a resolution one way or the other, however, in the meantime I think that you can agree that most HTML/CSS questions will receive more attention on StackOverflow (which, if the question seems to be languishing here, might be a good thing).
