Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 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

There's several older questions I just stumbled across, which at the time were closed as "not programming related", but should now be moved to SuperUser. How should these be dealt with?

Reopening then voting to close is rather slow, as it requires 10 votes (5 to reopen, 5 to close as "belongs on _")

I've just flagged them as needs-moderator-attention, is this the best way?

It depends in part on:

  • whether the OP is still around, or whether they were 1-question-wonders
  • whether the question is going to be constructive to the new site (especially without OP input)
  • what answers do they have?

Moving things to MSO is probably a lot clearer / easier. But yes, if appropriate flagging can help here; perhaps more than voting, since the questions are old
