We recently got a question over on Anime.SE that is about what appears to be about some sort of Korean hand gesture (depicted in a manhwa): What do these money-related gestures mean?

Would this question be on-topic here? I'm thinking it might be worth migrating here, but seeing as this site is still in early beta, I don't want to dump things on you that you don't want.

(Precedent-wise: we have a couple of gestural-communication-related questions over on Japanese.SE, e.g. https://japanese.stackexchange.com/q/27451/, and I would imagine that this is also true of other language SE sites.)

  • On the particular anime question source: if this is an (originally) Korean source i would guess it's fine to migrate. I think 'chisanbop' is relevant. Commented Nov 1, 2016 at 13:26

We do have at least one gesture question: Crossed hand gesture; we also have this (upvoted) suggestion that questions relating to non-verbal communication are fine: https://korean.meta.stackexchange.com/a/26/64. So in general, I think questions on non-verbal communication are fine until and unless we decide otherwise.

  • I agree that the question on the non-verbal gestures seems to be on topic.
