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

The close reasons need to be updated to include the new website.

Going forward, how will this be handled when we have hundreds of sites? I don't want to deal with a drop down that has more than a few possibilities...

How so? the site hasn't proven it will survive private or public beta thresholds.

So, at best, this is premature.

edit: we do have new question migration paths but I don't think webapps is a valid path from Stack Overflow -- unless you can cite more than a trickle of closed questions that belonged there.

The correct current answer is to mark it for closure as off topic.

If you feel kind, point to the correct other place to ask the question. I agree though, more than 3 or 4 places to vote to move something is going to turn me off from voting to move things there. I liked the idea that came up elsewhere of requiring some level of rep on the target system before you could initiate a vote to move a question there.

Note the close box was recently revamped so other sites are sub-choices of the off-topic reason: votes for migrating are now also formally off-topic votes. – Gnome Oct 24 '10 at 8:42
Yes. That's the point. It works fine when there are 4 options, but it won't work fine at all when there are 10, or 20, or 50. – Paul McMillan Oct 24 '10 at 9:41
I take it back. After the server migration, there don't seem to be any options for where to migrate a question. – Paul McMillan Oct 24 '10 at 9:47
They've never been here at Meta :) – BalusC Oct 24 '10 at 13:07
