The following question was asked on PMSE:
On the surface, the question title may appear on-topic, but after reading this well-written, detailed question, I noticed it was asked from the perspective of a developer and that it didn't seem to involve anything related to project management. The question does involve incentives, which may be on-topic for project management, but it didn't seem to be asked as a way to solve a specific project management problem.
Instead, it appeared to be a problem that an employee was facing related to his level of pay. This could easily be a problem a marketer was facing, or a pizza delivery driver, etc.
From the FAQ:
Project Management - Stack Exchange is for expert and enthusiast project managers who have questions about managing projects.
Does this question describe a project management problem or does this question describe a developer problem?
By leaving this open, are we setting a precedent for programmers to next ask about whether to use Java or C# in their next project, simply because a project manager may be interested in choosing the technology? Are we leaving the door open for someone to describe a problem they're having with a coworker harassing them, simply because a project manager might be interested in this topic?
If you think it should be considered on-topic, why? How does this question add value to a site for project management problems?
Let's use this question as an opportunity to help define the boundaries of the site and answer yet another tough question :)
UPDATE: Can the question be edited to be more on-topic (or less of a site boundary question)?
