I asked a question regarding forum software that matches particular parameters over here: Which free PHP based forum is the easiest to extend or customize?

This question might even be useful for future members when they run into the exact same scenario.

But my question was closed as an exact duplicate of: Which Content Management System (CMS)/Wiki should I use? - which it is not.

Can the respected moderators please consider re-opening my question and putting it back on the front page so it gets some attention?

Your question is a subset of the question that yours now points to. In other words, while your question and "Which Content Management System (CMS) should I use?" are not the same, your question completely fits within the other question and is a large enough part of it that there is no reason for two questions. Does that help?

    I'm sorry, I still don't think my question is an exact duplicate of the wiki question. Nor is it just a subset of the cited question. However, I went through the answer for the catch-all question again, and understand that what is the best app for my xyz situation is not the type of questions the members of this site want to answer. So I guess I'll stop whining about it :(

    @adityamenon Our FAQ explains the types of questions this site is intended to cover. If you want to poll others' opinions, your question will do better on a forum (like the one you mentioned in your question) or in chat.

  • Okay, @danlefree, chat has been mentioned repeatedly :) I will pop in there the next time I face something similar. What times can I expect to see maximum activity over there? US Day or Night?

    @adityamenon Webmasters chat isn't very busy, but I believe that you'll find StackOverflow chat has a PHP room that would suit your question.
