Perhaps this question has already been asked, but I've been unable to find anything similar. Can Stack Exchange follow a more generic approach? is alike somehow, but nevertheless mine differs and is less general.
I want to discuss the following case with you. Imagine that a user creates a question on some specific site; time passes by, and nobody gives a good answer. Then he realizes that actually there is more specialized site for his question, a site where he will probably receive more interesting and informed feedback.
Is there any way for him to move his question from one site in the SE network to another? Just move, nothing more complicated than that. No syncing, no providing same question for different sites, no importing, just moving?
Of course, even in this "simple" formulation, it is not that easy. There are lot of issues that should be resolved to make this feature workable. For example, how should it look from the point of view of the UI, should we also provide some voting mechanism to force moving, and so on.
UPD: OK, guys have told me about the way it can be done - we can flag the answer to moderator. Though we most possible will achieve what we wanted, I don't think this way is quite handy.
For example, Cody Gray says:
Extending it to anyone who asks a question would potentially "open up the flood-gates" for a bunch of bad, off-topic questions to be migrated to other sites.
But I can not see a real drama in the described situation. We actually have perfect engine for punishing "evil" or "lazy" or "stupid" askers - downvoting. User abusing etiquette will be punished by the community.
And please, downvote it! THIS IS AN ORDER!
