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

Sometimes I want to flag a question on Stack Overflow because it belongs to Math or Theoretical Computer Science, but I don't see those sites on the list provided when you click on:

It doesn't belong here > off topic

I usually see:

When you flag, choose

  • it needs ♦ moderator attention -> other

and explain why that question should migrate there?

So, if I want to flag it as off topic to a site that doesn't appear in the list, I have to tell why I think that? – Oscar Mederos May 6 '11 at 7:26
@Oscar, flagging involve marking your flag as valid or invalid, I mean it effects your flag weight. So, if you just write "please migrate this question to site X", there is a chance that they will reject your flag. – YOU May 6 '11 at 7:27
@YOU I know that, but if 5 other users say the same, there is no chance they will reject it, do you know what I mean? I've flagged questions to migrate them to Programmers SE and they have been migrated because other users said the same... – Oscar Mederos May 6 '11 at 7:29
@Oscar, if you suppose to do a feature-request to add "math" or "cs" site to off-topic list, there has been someone already requested before, and got declined as the reason "only 5 site available on the list" – YOU May 6 '11 at 7:31
@YOU Ok :) I just wanted to know what to do in that case – Oscar Mederos May 6 '11 at 7:49
@OscarMederos: Please only do this for VERY GOOD reasons. If it is sort-of on topic at SO and already has answers/upvotes, then don't bother. If it is languishing in obscurity or is not a good fit for SO, please feel free. – Won't May 6 '11 at 14:47
