What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

That would be similar to the auto-generated comment after someone votes to close a question as duplicate.

Imagine a question is off-topic and gets closed. The users that closed the question selected an alternative website while closing.

When the question is closed there is no hint that there might be a very similar site where (s)he could ask the question like superuser.com for example.

How about leaving an auto-generated comment like

This question would be a better fit for superuser.com.

if the users that closed the question selected a unique alternative website?

If the question is actually suitable for Super User, why would it have been closed instead of migrated in the first place? – Yannis Jun 21 '12 at 12:57

If the post deserves migration, it will likely be migrated.

If not (usually because it's a poor question, or a duplicate on the other SE site), we don't want to encourage re-posting, or in the event that the question isn't closed at all: cross-posting.

Of course, you are welcome to post the comment manually if you see fit, but I don't see any value in auto-generated comments of this nature.
