I just saw this question on the homepage of stackexchange: https://webmasters.stackexchange.com/questions/25360/student-homepage-template-for-google-sites

As far as I can tell, the question is asking for someone to tell them how to get a certain theme on google sites. That question should be on webapps.se, but it was migrated over to webmasters.se from webapps.se. What's going on?

Followed up with phwd at WebApps to revert migration - apparently Google Sites is blurring the line between "webmaster" and "end user" for their purposes, will address any future migrations on a case-by-case basis (I can see where some Google Sites users' questions would be fit here, but questions about how to use Google Sites don't belong here so far as I can see).


I'm a little concerned that these blurred lines are preventing users from getting answers to questions, even if some of the questions are of low quality.

  • I agree, it isn't what I'd call ideal, but, for the time being, low quality questions shouldn't be a top priority (consider that low quality questions most often represent failure to read the manual and have been answered... in the manual)

  • @danlefree You make a fair point, although a good number of users don't appear to have english as a first language. Commented Feb 5, 2012 at 1:17
