Is this meta question in scope for meta?

Tthe general question of "Is reposting a deleted answer acceptable?" is clearly in scope.

But it isn't clear to me that the linked question is. It seems plausible that "Can someone look have a look at this?" type questions aren't.


Sure. It's about the site itself, which generally speaking puts it in scope for meta, and we don't have any rules against such questions that would override that.

If people start posting a lot of these questions, to the point where they overwhelm other meta posts, then we might have to change that. But as it is, they're quite rare.

  • $\begingroup$ Take this question, for example. Do we really benefit from the community bot bumping this up? I read this thread as fully resolved, including the vote counts (Q+2, A+0 at writing), but the bot bumping algorithm knows nothing of that. $\endgroup$ – Emilio Pisanty Oct 16 '16 at 13:36
