My question is respected to the changes made to the flagging algorithm as reported here on meta Feedback on tools/flagged changes

There was question on Stack Overflow - https://stackoverflow.com/questions/17314020/how-to-differentiate-between-sodium-sulphate-and-potassium-sulphate

The question was subjected to be off topic as it was related to the Chemistry and not coding. So as a part of flagging i decided to flag the question as off topic but was not able to figure out which option to choose from

enter image description here

How should i flag the question here ?

When i choose the option as it belongs on other Stack Exchange sites i was having only these options available

enter image description here

With these options how one can flag the question as off topic ?

What i have done -

I choose to flag question as enter image description here

Is it the right way to flag such question ?

Edit : Please note that the question has been removed from the SO.

    Seems fine to me. The description could be a bit more..well..descriptive (indicate clearly that you are proposing a migration) but it should be fine. – Bart Jun 26 '13 at 8:00

    There should be an "other" category in the close sub-reasons that allows you to define a custom close reason in a comment. I see it on SO, but there might be some bug with that or some reputation requirement – Mad Scientist Jun 26 '13 at 8:01
  • @Bart ok will try to add more description while fagging in such case.But yes we are missing the other option here – NetStarter Jun 26 '13 at 8:02
  • @MadScientist yes may be the reputation or bug will be a problem someone also suggested me to use the other option in off topic category but i was not having any such option as shown in the screenshot – NetStarter Jun 26 '13 at 8:03

    A note (Chemistry moderator here): That would not have been that good a post for Chemistry, it was borderline spam and not that good either. – Manishearth Jun 26 '13 at 8:12

    Most certainly needed, as we can't simply flag as "off-topic" anymore. As well, there's a duplicate of Super User on the general off-topic page and the migration page. – Qantas 94 Heavy Jun 26 '13 at 8:37
