Is it appropriate to ask a question about Windows Phone Development on the site? If not, where should I ask such questions?

    @FrederickMarcoux Because I anticipate it will be a huge source of off-topic questions, and I wanted to nip this in the bud! :)

No, this is not the place for programming questions.

During this site's definition phase, it was decided that the Windows Phone Stack Exchange site should be "for enthusiasts and power users of Windows Mobile and Windows Phone 7". This is similar to the Android Enthusiasts Stack Exchange site.

Development questions still belong on Stack Overflow.


No, these questions are not appropriate for this site.

Per the faq, this site is for the end-user audience.

For developer questions, please check out Stack Overflow.


We have now determined that they belong on Stack Overflow and not here.

Can these get migrated rather than closed? I am using the mobile web version of this site and as far as I can tell they are just getting closed https://windowsphone.stackexchange.com/questions/632/connect-to-sql-databse-for-silverlight-app

Please excuse me if they are being migrated and I just can't tell. IMHO closing and not migrating seems a bit rude.

  • Seems to have now been migrated :)
