I think it should be here better: https://networkengineering.stackexchange.com/

    You couldn't move it with 3k+ rep also.

    @chelder you can vote to mmigrate a post to a select subset of sites once you have 3K. But it needs multiple people to agree. To move a most outside of the select subset of sites, you need to follow JoshDM's instructions. Commented Oct 8, 2013 at 17:07

    @chelder: Well you could vote to migrate with 3k+ rep. But that site is not in the list of migration sites.

  • @juergend - It always seems that the site I want to recommend migrating a question to is never in the list of suggested sites.

Flag the question as "it should be closed for another reason..." -> "off-topic because..." -> "This question belongs on another site in the Stack Exchange network". Then select your target site from the minimally listed options.

Sometimes the options don't list the site you think it should go to. If the preferred site isn't listed, click Flagging at the top of the floating box, and select other (needs ♦ moderator attention), and note your concerns in the text box.

Then let SO nature take its course. You can check your flag status on occasion for progress.

  • When you do this, be sure to explain why it needs migrated. You can't just say "move this" and expect it to be moved. Also, mods on the target site (Network Engineering in this case) would likely have to accept the post. Commented Oct 8, 2013 at 17:05
  • I already did, but I cannot check your answer as the correct till 6 minutes :p

  • @psubsee2003 - I figured I covered that with "note your concerns".

  • @JoshDM you probably did, I was just making sure the "concerns" were explicit. Commented Oct 8, 2013 at 17:21
