What is the policy on importing questions by simply quoting the question over here?
I put "imported" in quotes, because they weren't actually imported. The user just quoted the respective StackOverflow post as a new question (and then self answered).
While I'm not particular opposed to this method, I'm wondering what the official policy is for this sort of thing. Should the question instead be imported properly?1 (Answers can still be added to imported questions).
Another question, https://software.codidact.com/questions/277937 had been posted, but is now deleted. It doesn't even bother to provide information needed to answer the question; When asked for clarification, the poster literally just asked viewers to go to the StackExchange question for context.
Maybe a visit there would clarify?
This, I feel, definitely shouldn't be allowed, and I flagged it for 'closure as unclear' since they didn't bother to add the relevant information to the post.
Something that should also be considered is that question 277934 was from Super User, which I don't know if is able to be imported from to our Software Dev community. ↩
