I wanted to either vote to close or flag https://academia.stackexchange.com/questions/11360/form-get-method-prints-viewstate-value-in-addressbar as suitable for SO.SE, but I could only suggest it belongs on ac.meta.se (which it doesn't). If something belongs on another SE site how do I vote to close for that reason?


It is quite counter-intuitive, but here is how it should be done:

As you noted, the “belongs on another SE site” only lists a few pre-determined sites (which we can ask the moderators to complement if we wish). Everything else is “other”.

  • As a mod, I'd rather you not take this approach; for us mods, the third option—"this questin belongs on another site in the Stack Exchange network"—contains a text box which we can use to send the question to any site on the SE network. Flag it and we'll take care of it. – eykanal Jul 24 '13 at 12:44

    @eykanal okay… it's a bit sad that this has to go through flagging, while the whole infrastructure for closing is otherwise quite streamlined – F'x Jul 24 '13 at 12:49

    I hear ya, and I definitely agree. I posted this request to Meta a long time ago, but The Powers That Be feel that it would enable too many frivolous migrations. **shrug** Whatever. – eykanal Jul 24 '13 at 14:18

Mods have the option to send it to any other site. Flag it and we'll send it there.

    Presumably you mean flag it as " it needs ♦ moderator attention" since if I flag it as "it doesn't belong here, or it is a duplicate" I just get to the same place as if I am trying to close it. – StrongBad Jul 24 '13 at 13:03
  • Yeah, that's probably right. I don't use the flagging system that much, as I'm more often on the other end of it :) – eykanal Jul 24 '13 at 14:19
