There are quite a few questions recently which are off-topic here and belong to Chemistry.SE

Should we add that to the migrate options?

E.g. question : https://physics.stackexchange.com/questions/75081/soap-like-chemical-causing-the-water-to-evacuate

  • $\begingroup$ It's not that good a question. As a Chem mod I'd prefer if it was a bit more detailed before it was posted/migrated. $\endgroup$ – Manishearth Aug 23 '13 at 19:08

    $\begingroup$ @Manishearth, I thought we would usually just migrate it and let the guys on the other site decide whether it was detailed enough. Because closed or not, it shouldn't be on Physics.SE $\endgroup$ – udiboy1209 Aug 23 '13 at 19:10

    $\begingroup$ Usually, yes, but less so for beta sites. Also, I am "the guy on the other site" :p $\endgroup$ – Manishearth Aug 23 '13 at 19:15

Chemistry is a beta site, and as a rule we shouldn't really be migrating to beta sites. So I don't see this happening. Once Chemistry graduates to full site status, then sure, we can reconsider.

For now, if a question seems like it should be migrated to a beta site, just flag it as off topic or vote to close as off topic if you have sufficient reputation. When the questions accumulates 3 or 4 close votes, a moderator will take care of migration.

  • $\begingroup$ Oh, I didn't know that. I was also going to propose a migrate option to Engineering.SE instead of the off-topic engineering reason, once it started but considering that we cannot migrate to beta sites, that seems like too far away in the future. $\endgroup$ – udiboy1209 Aug 23 '13 at 19:07
