What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

I apologize if that has been discussed before, didn't find anything when searching. But I think it would be convenient if there was an option to vote to close/migrate questions to programmers.stackexchange.com. (In fact, I believe that is in part why that site exists -- to get rid of those questions from SO) Is this planned already? Or is it too early because it's still in beta?

Nobody is going to set one up because they only do migration paths when a site is out of public beta, and thats not going to change any time soon. Why not leave comments? – TheLQ Sep 18 '10 at 17:25
I've been leaving some comments saying "this question would be better asked on programmers.stackexchange.com", myself. I'd like a migration option when programmers.se gets out of beta. – David Thornley Oct 15 '10 at 13:38
It's out of beta now, this should be looked at again. – Adam Dec 21 '10 at 19:07

It should happen - eventually.

But right now, the site is still in beta. Which means two thing:

  1. It may well be killed off. In which case, questions migrated there would be lost. Not that that's necessarily a bad thing...

  2. It isn't fully defined yet. So it wouldn't necessarily be clear which questions were appropriate for migration. The original definition of the site implied subjective-programming and programmer-related questions would be the focus, but discussion is ongoing

Most importantly than anything else is the fact that it's in beta -- there won't be migration until a site graduates – juanformoso Sep 18 '10 at 17:39
Thanks to all who chimed in. Makes sense that this wouldn't happen 'til post-beta. – Kirk Woll Sep 18 '10 at 21:46
No longer in beta, this should be done now – Adam Dec 21 '10 at 19:06
