What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question

  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Once the SO's off-topic list is not yet fulfilled, would it be possible to add CV SE to it?

enter image description here

I know it is not so frequent to have posts migrated from here to there, but it is at least common.

Maybe the logic is to include SE sites according to the number of posts that are migrated, but I am not sure if this rule is implemented yet, and if CV would appear among the first ones.

The standard andwer here is that "If you want to make this argument, show that <your suggested site> has more migration targets than other sites." The list is manually set by the SE folks, but it does have the concept of 'most common = on the list' in general. – Joe Jul 17 '13 at 14:46
@Joe, thank's for the comment. If I want to count the number of migrated questions, how can I do that? Is it possible to filter them? – Andre Silva Jul 17 '13 at 14:55

There is no extra slot. The dialog is just too big. I believe its dimensions made more sense with our old close reasons that took up more space, but we can and probably should shrink it down some now. It has to accommodate the duplicate finder UI, so we can't make it smaller.

Stack Overflow has the maximum number of migration paths already defined.

Ok, thank's. Just before accepting your answer. How can I count the number of posts migrated? I have a suspicious (just guessing), that there are more questions migrated to CV, than Tex SE, for example. – Andre Silva Jul 17 '13 at 14:58
Why is there a line through the text in this post? – user223277 Jul 17 '13 at 15:10
@AndreSilva 10k users can see the migration stats. You are quite wrong, TeX - LaTeX has 5x the number of migrations that CV does. If there were another slot, it would be for Code Review – Kevin Jul 17 '13 at 15:42
In fact CR has 1.5x more migrations than Sharepoint, so if anything CR should be swapped in for it. (@anna) – Kevin Jul 17 '13 at 15:44
@Kevin. Ok, then. Thank's for clarifying this. – Andre Silva Jul 17 '13 at 15:45
Not surprising; TeX is almost-programming and used heavily by programmers, so you'd get a lot of those questions here :) CV probably has a high percentage of migrations, compared to total questions here in R/SAS/SPSS/etc., but those pale to the other topics here. – Joe Jul 17 '13 at 15:48
@Kevin CR is still in beta and beta sites aren't eligible to be user-driven migration paths. – Adam Lear Jul 17 '13 at 17:22
