well today we had a question really suited for Stack over flow in gamedev. But when I tried to flag it I could only suggest it belongs to meta site. I guess we add Other related sites to that list, like SOF, programmers, or maybe mathematics.

side note: I just asked on meta.stackoverflow to add Gamedev to their off topic list, and some moderator said it only has enough space for 4 other sites which are already occupied. So I guess a moderator could do the job.

  • \$\begingroup\$ +1 Yes; this absolutely needs be addressed. I'm guessing it would take someone, somewhere about 2 minutes to add this into the off-topic panel. \$\endgroup\$ – Engineer Dec 31 '12 at 13:52

Just flag it for moderator attention. We can migrate to any site.

  • \$\begingroup\$ +1 for "just flagging," that's what I do (pretty extensively) and it's much better, in my opinion, than bothering with links to other SE sites because inevitably we'll get a question that belongs on some SE site that we don't have direct links for, et cetera. \$\endgroup\$ – Josh Jan 31 '12 at 16:21
  • \$\begingroup\$ @JoshPetrie I'm sorry, but I totally disagree with this. There are many questions here (eg. this) that should go straight to SO, and some on eg. CS, Math, or programmers SE. Why waste mods' time when we can simply do it ourselves? \$\endgroup\$ – Engineer Dec 31 '12 at 13:52
  • \$\begingroup\$ @NickWiggill As far as I'm aware, no amount of migrate flags will cause the migration to happen automatically anyway (especially not a year ago when I wrote that comment), so a moderator will need to be involved in any case. \$\endgroup\$ – Josh Jan 2 '13 at 1:57
