I'd like (and have asked for) mods on both sites to chime in, but this isn't looking like a good idea at this point. Stats are pretty clear, 52% of all moderator initiated migrations from PSE to The Workplace (as obtained on The Workplace) have been rejected.

Part of the problem is that the questions that could be sent really aren't good questions full stop. This is actually a problem with most sites on the network.

This is the best solution right now - http://chat.stackexchange.com/rooms/3060/the-water-cooler This is almost always very active and almost always within 24 hours (excluding weekends, somewhat). There are a few people who currently either drop questions in there which is great, but if there are frequent moderator questions about "should this go to ...
