This question: Convince my supervisor for me to switch my research field to his major area halfway in my PhD

seems off-topic for me as it depends on the personal circumstances and relationship between the student and advisor. As ff says, "talk to him."

Of course, whether to close should be a community decision, but I can't even flag to close because there's a bounty. This seems like a bug in the SE model as one could "protect" one's own posting from getting flagged for closure by putting a bounty on it.
