Stack Exchange users have the ability to flag a post to be closed because the post at hand has content that doesn't fit into the topic-range covered by the given Stack Exchange site.

The dialog that appears offers a very, very limited selection of other Stack Exchange sites which the person who's flagging the post has to choose from. I'm wondering why isn't there a better menu for this that offers more choices?

I have seen a lot of topics on Stack Overflow which are about general Linux stuff (installation, dual boot, etc.) and so on that definitely belong to unix.stackexchange.com but alas! I'm unable to find any way to point exactly where the post belongs to because of the limited (5-6) choice of Stack Exchange sites (most of which I might add are definitely not that popular).

Is this a reputation points limitation (I've just reached 2K on Stack Overflow) or is this really that useless as a feature?

  • Migration paths are site-specific and limited to sites that would be useful to both sites. If you think the migration paths for a specific site should be changed you should probably ask on that site's meta (sounds like meta.so). – Cai Sep 17 '16 at 21:30
  • If a question is off topic for a site, flag/vote to close it. If it's indeed a good question for another site, it'll find its way there eventually. – yannis Sep 17 '16 at 21:30
  • Ah, sorry. Didn't know there is SO Meta. – rbaleksandar Sep 18 '16 at 6:20
