Now that the site is out of beta, presumably we're going to get migration paths set up to the other sites. It would stand to reason adding Stack Overflow would be a no-brainer, but are there any other migration paths that should be set up?

  • Don't forget to post evidence of questions that should have been migrated and that there are only 4 free "slots" to fill.

It's rare but sometimes questions belonging to SF show up here. I think the most migration paths needed, besides SO, are in beta/commit or even in definition phase.


Off hand, I would think that Super User might also be a good one to be able to send questions to. Beyond that, questions relevant to Webmasters or Webapps might show up from time to time, but I suspect they would be quite rare.

    If you can find questions that fit these site then post their links. It will help get the migration path set up.

Although I don't know if they should be made now, since I haven't looked through the closed questions, but some possible Stack Exchanges that should be linked:

  • Unix and Linux (when it comes out of Beta, of course)
  • User Interface
  • Game Development
  • Web Applications
  • On Startups
  • Super User
  • Server Fault
  • Stack Overflow

I would suggest that we add an option 'Other' when flagging a question as off-topic that belongs on a different SE.

I have just flagged one question that was about software license / disclaimers that really was about law and what you can do in a disclaimer and if placing a tool which could be illegal in the public domain as in github or bitbucket.

I had to mark it as blatantly off-topic, but that is not really nice neither to the asker nor to the flagger, feeling not being that polite to someone looking for help.

I don't think it is needed to actually be able to write which SE site it should be moved to, as that can be done in a comment on the question in a polite way.

  • Note: no question is ever closed as "blatantly" off-topic unless a close-voter (3k+) takes the time to write exactly that in their custom comment. That's just a placeholder for flaggers, who don't get the option to write a comment that's also a close vote. May 6, 2016 at 5:24
  • Ah ok. I will feel less bad next time ;-)

    If there is no direct migration path and you feel the question is a good quality, on-topic question at another site: flag the question for moderator review and make your case for migration. Moderators can migrate anywhere.
