I use a specific example for this question but it is fairly general.
I have noticed that many questions are asked on SO about general use of Excel, tagged with excel, and/or excel-formula. These questions generally don't involve any programming and belong to Super User, rather than Stack Overflow.
They sometimes get migrated to SU. However, the votes to migrate often get stuck at 3 or 4, probably because there are not so many users with enough rep following those tags. Not only do the questions not really fit the FAQ, but they would get better attention on the dedicated site.
- What is the best thing to do when that happens (apart from voting to migrate)?
- Do the posters get warned that some people have voted to migrate their questions and that it might make sense to ask them on a different site?
- Would it make sense to have the number of votes required to migrate / close etc. be related to the popularity of the tags used?
