Did something change with how to migrate questions to another stackoverflow website? The close reasons disappeared. Or is the ability to migrate questions gone now?

Yes, we just changed the workflow:

Step 1:


Step 2:

offtopic 2

You see our dialog was not scaling to a ba-zillion close reasons. Migrated questions are always by-definition off-topic, so they get a new shiny area.

Nice - this looks much better –  Barry Oct 14 '10 at 7:53
I could swear that it wasn't like that yet, when I asked the question (because I already thought something like this and changed every option). Well, thanks for the answer :) –  poke Oct 14 '10 at 8:22
The text to off-topic in step 1 really ought to give a hint about the possibility to migrate in step 2; this is by absolutely no means abvious from just seeing the step 1 page! –  hlovdal Dec 5 '10 at 2:27
so, if I realize that my question is better on say serverfault, I must vote myself to close it and flag it as off-topic? No other self-humiliation steps? You guys are not creative enough. E.g. replacing my avatar with "I'm an idiot" is relevant too :) –  davka May 26 '11 at 13:28
What do I do if the question is already closed as off topic? –  Annan Dec 20 '11 at 18:27
how do you migrate it to a site that doesn't show up in that list, for example drupal.stackexchange.com? –  MotoTribe Jan 2 '12 at 3:23
and to migrate to a site not on the list, see meta.stackoverflow.com/questions/91381/… –  flodel Dec 9 '12 at 13:46
