Following from Update Migration Path List for Non-Moderators, this idea proposes that a check be made every now and then to automatically change the list of direct migration flags, making things more efficient.

The best metric of determining the list is probably a combination of successful migrations and rejection rate. It may also be a good idea to consider whether there's a path going the other way.

For the frequency of this check, I was thinking once a month, though "whenever the mods feel things could be better" could be good too.

I don't know about once a month. Remembering all the migration targets is hard enough (especially if you're active on several sites). Potentially having them changed once a month doesn't make it easier. – Dennis Jul 13 '12 at 17:25
I kind of doubt any site will have shifts big enough to upset the list (other than maybe the last element) every month. That said though, running this less often (every two/three months?) is perfectly fine. The intent is to automate a process that only occurs when people realize things aren't optimal. – Toomai Jul 13 '12 at 19:29
