Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

This question is an exact duplicate of:

Since I registered myself on Code Review, I've spotted many questions which belong on that site instead of on Stack Overflow.

I think it would be useful if we added that site to the list of sites in the Off-topic reason, since it has many similarities with Stack Overflow.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Code Review needs to go out of Beta before that can happen. Once it is out of beta, there needs to be care that not all bad SO questions end up there, as happened with Programmers. – Oded Mar 3 '13 at 18:50
@Oded Migrations from SO to Code Review are nowhere near as complicated. There's a pretty clear-cut distinction between the sites, so I wouldn't be too worried about repeating the past here. :) – Adam Mar 3 '13 at 18:51
@Oded: Specifically, 1.) there must be some real code (no pseudocode), 2.) specific questions must directly relate to the code, and 3.) asking for new code is not allowed. – Jamal Oct 18 '13 at 23:30

We don't set up migration paths to sites that are still in beta. When Code Review graduates, we can revisit the off-topic list on Stack Overflow.

yes, we need to wait until stable is out, of course (I hadn't seen that). We can keep this question as a reminder. – Wouter J Mar 3 '13 at 18:58
Should it not be status-planned or status-deferred? – hjpotter92 Oct 19 '13 at 4:21
@hjpotter92 Meh. At the moment, the request is declined. – Adam Oct 21 '13 at 1:04
