I would like to help Stack Exchange out by flagging/voting for questions to be migrated to an appropriate site. How does this work and how can I do this?

  • Any example? We don't just migrate stuff around for the fun of it - anything specific on your mind? – Oded Sep 7 '13 at 13:12
  • I've made a bit of a substantial edit there Sangeet. Could you have a look if that's what you wanted to ask? If not, feel free to roll it back. – Bart Sep 7 '13 at 13:18
  • Just read following link, it shows that its not very obvious to select questions for migration, google.com/… – Sangeeta Sep 7 '13 at 13:22
  • So you're asking how to migrate to a site that's not on the list of targets? (If so, flag for moderator attention and mention the site you think is an appropriate target). – Bart Sep 7 '13 at 13:23
  • When a user is writing a question on any of the SE websites, I want to suggest him on which possible sites he can ask his question (if they are more suitable then his current website). Thanks!! – Sangeeta Sep 7 '13 at 13:25
  • Please let me know if I can do this, can I float a survey, on this website regarding this. Thanks!! – Sangeeta Sep 7 '13 at 13:32

    Please only do this for questions that are off topic on the site they were posted on. If they're on topic but just maybe better suited somewhere else, don't tell the poster, because that usually just leads to cross posting (which is not allowed). – slhck Sep 7 '13 at 13:33
  • @Sangeeta I updated the duplicate into a much better FAQ just for this question. :) – animuson Sep 7 '13 at 16:34

For new users, you can downvote and leave a comment about how the question should be closed.

Users with 3K+ rep can vote to close a question with the option of moving it. For example:

Vote to close

Vote to Close Dialog Page 1

Choose "This question belongs on another site in the stack exchange network"

Vote to Close Dialog Page 2

Choose where it should go

Vote to Close Dialog Page 3

  • Your second screenshot is misleading. To migrate,you actually have to select the "This question belongs on another site" option. Any of the other options would not migrate the question. – animuson Sep 7 '13 at 15:34

    @animuson You're right. I added another screenshot. – Sam Sep 7 '13 at 15:38
