Many stack exchange websites have a close reason, "Blatantly off-topic"

We don't have this though. Was there a particular reason why we seem to be in the minority of SE sites that don't have (actually the only one I've seen)? If not I think we should add it. I often find myself wanting to edit the off-topic reason from "...because this question is about" to read "...because this is not about graphic design."

I don't think it's needed as a whole. The clearly off-topic questions are actually few and far between from what I see.

What is needed is to select more then one option for "belongs on other stack site". I just don't feel right sending everything to Meta so mods can sort it out. An auto-comment with link about the other stack site would be beneficial.

  • I answered the other question but I'll summarize now - volume of migrated questions is not yet high enough to warrant new migration paths. The best way to handle that is to flag for mod attention, or post on meta.

  • The best way to get a question migrated is to flag it, usually takes less time.
