Users with "close" priviledge can mark off-topic questions to be migrated to thie Meta.TeX.SX site. I suggest to add two more migration options:

I know I can alert the moderators and they can migrate to any site, still I think that these two migration pathes would be helpful.


There was a previous discussion about this with no real conclusion. The two suggestions I propose here are supported by numerous "likes" in the other thread.

  • StackOverflow could also be useful for questions about pre/postprocessing scripts. – T. Verron Feb 21 '13 at 12:28
  • Related, but unsucessful: Do we want more migration paths? – doncherry Feb 22 '13 at 2:53

    Note that Graphic Design is in beta - it might be best if we waited until it goes live before asking for this path. – Charles Stewart Feb 22 '13 at 11:13
  • @doncherry I remember that there was such a thread, with no conclusion. It seemed to me better to make a fresh one, and I quite happily see that my requests here go along with the most popular suggestions there. – yo' Feb 22 '13 at 12:24
  • StackOverflow would also be a nice to have migrate path for the increasing number of r related (and tex unrelated) questions. – user36296 Sep 16 '17 at 16:43

I think it would be great to have these migration paths. Another helpful migration target would be Super User, for questions that don’t involve *TeX after all. We get these questions occasionally; some of them were simply asked on the wrong site, others are just more likely to get a helpful solution when widening the scope of possible tools beyond *TeX.

  • Super User is a bit of a graveyard - even good questions often get little or no attention there. I think the main purpose of the site was to have a constructive-sounding reason to say certain questions don't belong on SO. I think I'd rather not have this migration option: I'd rather put these questions out of their misery than create false hope. – Charles Stewart Feb 22 '13 at 9:24

In addition to the paths already mentioned, I would say:

Code review,

Emacs

and

Mathematics.
