How do I migrate a question to a site which is not listed in close window?

Is possible to vote to move a SO question to Patents? (or to any other SE site, not listed among 5 off-topic alternatives)

The typical answer is "just flag for a diamond moderator, they can move from anywhere to anywhere," but what question are you thinking of? I know some crazy off-topic gets posted sometimes, but even so, SO -> Patents seems like a weird migration to me. –  Pops Sep 30 '12 at 8:01

Licenses is not the topic for Patents. –  kiamlaluno Sep 30 '12 at 8:03
    
If not Patents, where the question possibly can be answered? –  Serg Sep 30 '12 at 8:04
    
I don't recall there are sites about licenses. Programmers has some questions about software licenses, but I cannot tell you they consider those questions still on-topic. –  kiamlaluno Sep 30 '12 at 8:08

You can flag for moderation attention, and ask for a question to be migrated.
Bear in mind that old questions are not probably migrated; in the same way, questions that are not good are not migrated (e.g. subjective questions).

For Ask Patents, remember the topic is:

  • Solicit help finding prior art that might apply to a patent or application
  • Get answers to hard questions about specific patents
  • Ask questions about the US patent system or process
