I created a question related to Gimp usage, because a few such questions were under the tag Gimp.

My question was closed.

I asked on askubuntu because I'm Ubuntu user. I know that Gimp is multi-platform and I could have asked on superuser (if they have different rules about particular applications). The other reason is that superuser don't accept my questions, though I don't have bad reputation there now.

Where should this question be migrated (graphics design, superuser, or another) and how to do it in my sitatuation?

It depends.

If it is a question about general graphic design, like yours, you have much better chances of getting a good answer in those sites, a good graphic designer, even if he has only experience in Photoshop can help you more than most people here. I'd migrate it.

But if the question is related to the use of Gimp in Ubuntu (like where does it store it's plugins, or what PPAs are there to install development versions), then I believe that it belongs here at least as much as those other sites.

  • OK, I migrated it on graphics design, though they closed it in a moment as a duplicate with similar question (not duplicate).

  • @xralf You'll want to take that up with their meta, we have no power over there. Commented Mar 19, 2012 at 19:34
  • @MarcoCeppi Thanks, I already reformulated the question.
