There is a site about chess an one about Board & Card Games. I keep seeing questions about chess on the Board & Card Games site. *The problem is it brakes the topic. 2 of 2 things need to happen.

1) Whoever reads this, move your chess posts and go around giving people this important advice
2) Make it clear!

  • @Andrew How can this be a dupe of my question, when my question is predicated on the answer to this one?

  • @DonielF both questions specifically ask if chess questions should be moved to the chess se as off topic here. Your question is of better quality actually asking if they should be considered off topic and moved, while this 'question' is more a statement saying we should.

People asking about Chess on Board & Card Games is not a problem for Board & Card Games. It doesn't break anything, Chess is a Board Game and is therefore on topic.

As to why people ask about Chess on Board & Card Games when Chess would seem the more obvious place, the answer is they don't. Not much anyway, looking at the chess tag there have only been 8 questions this year.

  • Then I've got to say, some posts aren't in that tag. Oct 26, 2013 at 16:49
