After pointing the umpteenth LaTeX question poster from StackOverflow to tex.stackexchange.com, I thought it would be nice if people got a suggestion when entering a particular tag. In this case, it could trigger on the tags tex and latex which would catch most, if not all, of the questions that would be better asked on tex.stackexchange.com.

It could show a message above or below the "Related Questions" box, offering a link to transfer the current form's contents to the other Stack Exchange site.

Sorry if this has been suggested before; if so, I couldn't find it.

    Here is a related one that suggests opening migration paths based on tags. But in thinking, plain suggestions for asking on other sites I think is mostly in comments. Do note that some users have taken to adding advertisements for the new Stack Exchange sites in the tag wikis - this makes the link clear when hovering over any such tag.

  • I think if you ask a question and the only tag is [wordpress] it should automatically be migrated to wordpress.SE
