The general rules on what are 'good' migrations are that the question should be well-written on-topic on the target site not on-topic for the 'source' site The last point is important in the sense that the original poster has made some form of choice of where to ask: it might be accidental, but it might equally be deliberate if the question is arguably on-...


An explicit migration path to TeX.SE was initially realized on June 5th, 2012. Following this route doesn't guarantee migration here. If some (other/the majority of) users designate the post as off-topic without specifying an appropriate migration path, then the post might end up as "Off topic" without being migrated, even though you voted/requested it. Why ...


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.

In addition to the paths already mentioned, I would say: Code review, Emacs and Mathematics.
