Could someone tell me, is it okay to post at DT a post you have made on this site?

It's strongly frowned upon.

But fear not. Most active members visit both forums, so the post will be seen.

Note there is a tendency to visit this forum more often.

Just curious, why do you think that it would be frowned upon? I would have thought that it would draw more posters/viewers? At least in my opinion, since many people do not like to post, viewership would be just as important as posting in terms of revenues? Yes? Or am I full it?

The rules say to not post a post more than once. But the rules say nothing about posting the same post at DT. I have a post buried in a thread that would be relevant at DT. I guess I could ask a mod.

Chances are that if it is appropriate for DT it is inappropriate here, though it may get more viewers here.

That shooting in Las Vegas could have taken place anywhere and most of the responses have nothing to do with being unique to Las Vegas, so if I were a Green Inker, I'd nuke everyone involved in it.

In short, keep the Vegas site related to Gambling and to Las Vegas. A shooting in Walmart is for DT, a shooting in a casino is for Vegas.

Apologies in advance for my ignorance, but what does DT refer to?

DT = Dead Thread

It is where threads go to die slow, painful deaths. I get the point of it--the Wizard has given us a place to post things that are off-topic here but, in reality, they don't get nearly as much traction there as they did here.

If your topic is worthy of discussion, I wouldn't think starting a thread with it over there would be a bad thing. All three people who frequent DT will likely comment!!!

DT is the current home of EvenBob, who won't post over here at this point for some reason.

That shooting took place in Vegas; it is kind of hard to say it wasn't related to Vegas. It may not have been related to gambling, but then you could also say that shows and restaurants have little to do with gambling, too.
