Questions asking about how HDL constructs relate/imply hardware or vice versa, I think belong on Electronics.

Question about testbenches, compiler errors feel like programming questions to me, and StackOverflow already does a good job of answering them, Verilog Qs on StackOverflow.

Example questions I think could be migrated :

I would like some guidelines on this topic as I see a number of posts which I think would get better answers on StackOverflow, but do not want to unnecessarily/incorrectly flag them.

Update Based on the The Photons feedback I understand that downvotes on meta are against the idea, not the question. From the down votes against migrating questions implies the community welcomes HDL based questions.

  • \$\begingroup\$ Thanks @The Photon, I was only wanting to know if that was what the community wanted todo. Most questions I have answered here on Verilog end up getting migrated to SO. I though it was a community effort to separate out programming syntax issues from hardware related issues. \$\endgroup\$ Mar 13 '13 at 20:55
  • \$\begingroup\$ @CamilStaps Thanks for pointing me to that question, ThePhotons answer there is good and looks like it applies across the board to cross over topics. \$\endgroup\$ Mar 14 '13 at 7:53

They are a boundary that is on topic on both sites, as such I feel we should allow users to choose where they ask and keep the questions there.
