Add cstheory.stackexchange.com to the list of site for “off-topic” questions

Currently when voting to close a question and choose the "off-topic" as the reason, I am given a list of sites to choose from:

  • belongs on meta.stackoverflow.com
  • belongs on serverfault.com
  • belongs on superuser.com
  • belongs on webmasters.stackexchange.com
  • belongs on programmers.stackexchange.com

What should I do if I believe the question should go to cstheory? Will it be added to the list?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

This is problematic because people don't always read the FAQ of a site before voting to migrate a question to that site and there are a lot of misunderstandings on SO about what's on-topic on cstheory. If you compare the number of non-research level questions with comments saying "this belongs on cstheory" to the number of questions, which actually do belong on cstheory, you'll probably find that opening up cstheory as a migration path would be a bad idea. – sepp2k Feb 21 '11 at 22:33

There are a limited number migration paths for any site. If you feel that a question belongs on a site not in the list, flag it for moderator attention. They can migrate questions to any site, if it is warranted.

Agreeing with @sepp2k's comment, there was a question migrated from Programmers.SE to CSTheory.SE, which turned-out to be a horrible migration. It's probably a good thing for CSTheory.SE that there isn't a direct path because their community is dedicated to expert-level problems and most users voting to migrate aren't expert enough to understand what an appropriate question is.
