The FAQ states:

What kind of questions should I not ask here?

[...]

If your question is about …

  • Networking, servers, or maintaining other people's PCs and contains no source code, ask on Server Fault.
  • General computer software or hardware troubleshooting, ask on Super User.
  • Web design and HTML/CSS layout, and your job title is "designer", ask on Doctype.

How about adding something like:

  • Programming functionality on your site, ask on StackOverflow

I'm concerned that we're diluting that key resource by not encouraging programming related questions on there.

  • nah, its not like Stackoverflow is important or popular or the grandaddy of this whole thing. I say we leave it out ;) +1 – Gordon Gustafson Jul 8 '10 at 21:47

    They really need to add something about stack overflow and move all of the programming questions to Stack overflow. There are a ton of programming questions on the site already that really need to be moved. – Ben Hoffman Jul 8 '10 at 21:58

Ah, excellent point -- added.

    As a point of note, shouldn't the AppOffline file be more stack exchange based on here, rather than telling me, lots of times, with a lot of highlights that StackOverflow is down for maintenance? – Zhaph - Ben Duguid Jul 9 '10 at 9:48
  • In general, per Jeff's answer about what is listed for migrating questions between sites, I'd think the same sites would appear in the FAQ: meta.stackexchange.com/questions/52141/… – Rebecca Chernoff Jul 9 '10 at 13:06
  • I was just about to ask this same question hoping others could avoid the issues I was having,.. where is this in the webmaster's FAQ o_O? – Garet Claborn May 9 '11 at 20:38

    @garet this is automated now based on the open "blessed" question migration routes. I'll make sure the webmasters -> SO route is blessed – Jeff Atwood May 9 '11 at 21:40

    @garet it's already in there -- "If your question would be of interest to … Professional and enthusiast programmers, ask on Stack Overflow." because that is already a blessed close reason here on Pro Webmasters – Jeff Atwood May 9 '11 at 23:14
  • absolutely no idea how i missed it. – Garet Claborn May 10 '11 at 6:19

I think the FAQ should list all the stack exchange websites even remotely similar.
