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

Is there a way for you to tag a question on my StackExchange site, and it suggest another SE site?

For example, I am on Stack Overflow, and I tag one of my questions as Windows Server 2008. Can the StackExchange network fire up, search for tags on other SE sites and suggest sites were that tag is used more. In the example, it would suggest ServerFault (I think).

I guess my question is more along the lines of ... can the SE sites communicate with each other?

Hmmm... this could, in theory, be covered by this feature request. – Jon Seigel Oct 7 '10 at 17:12

Generally this is what question migration is for:

I guess so ... but that isn't very cool. It would be cooler if you made it look like SE had some AI, and interrupted the user with a clippy telling them, "I think you want to ask this question on Server Fault". – Martin Oct 7 '10 at 17:43
@Martin not sure whether you mean this as a joke or a serious suggestion. If it's a serious suggestion: this would never work. Imagine a programming problem that occurs only on Windows Server 2008 - perfectly okay to ask on SO, and tag Windows-server-2008. An "AI" for this would take man-years to develop and require constant fine-tuning. What's wrong with the current process? – Pëkka Oct 7 '10 at 17:48
@Pekka's: Of course it could work. A simple "AI" is already described in the original post. It would just give a suggestion, so "a programming problem that occurs only on Windows Server 2008" is not a problem. – Mechanical snail Jul 20 '11 at 9:37
