Would it be worth having the new Software Recommendation Stack Exchange site added as an option in the close option "This question belongs on another site in the Stack Exchange network" dialogue?

I am aware the site is still in beta of course, but maybe this could drive adoption and a full launch of that site?

  • @gnat I prefer [status-declined] for these types of requests, because [status-deferred] implies we will revisit them sometime soon(ish). However, with beta sites the reality is that graduation might take a year or two, or not happen at all. – yannis Feb 21 '14 at 10:46

It's standard policy to not have beta sites as migration targets. This is to allow the site to develop by itself during beta and define a solid community. If there are exceptional questions that are off-topic here and on-topic there, moderators can migrate to any site on the network, so you can flag it. I wouldn't expect too many migrations, though.

  • Fair enough! For you last statement, why not? And if that site comes out of beta, I guess that would be the best time to request this feature? seems a no brainer at that point then? – ozz Feb 20 '14 at 9:27
  • Until they have a good, solid definition and examples of what they consider to be high quality or exceptional answers, i personally don't feel comfortable migrating anything there. If they get out of beta, this should be revisited – Thomas Owens Mod Feb 20 '14 at 9:29

    @Ozz When SR gets out of beta, the first thing we'll have to do is take a look at our migration stats (10K+ link). If we are sending a lot of questions to SR at that time, adding a migration path would indeed be a no brainer. A few more details on the overall policy and process on Tim Post's answer on a related question. – yannis Feb 20 '14 at 12:20
