Related question: Why is meta.ux.stackexchange.com the only choice for migration?
As a result of the answer I received to the aforementioned related question, I thought I'd see about asking for a feature request.
With respect to migrating a question to another *.SE site, in his answer, @BennySkogberg stated:
So what do we do? Personally I post a close vote as off topic, either by the options predefined, or write my own custom close reason. After that I flag for moderator attention with the simple words "Migrate to GD.SE?". When a mod see the flag, he (there are only he-mods here) uses the dialogue above to post an imediate close and migration request (if it's a valid flag).
Being a moderator for SharePoint.SE, he showed what they have for migration:
As you can see, they have a box that allows them to type in and search for a site in the *.SE network.
My feature request is to have something along the lines of what @BennySkogberg already does, but automating it.
Here's what I would suggest:
When closing a question by clicking Off-Topic > This question belongs on another site in the Stack Exchange network, the Migration modal should have a box that let's us type in and/or search for a site to migrate the question to.
There should be a Vote To Migrate button and when clicked, it should be just like other closing flags, in that it requires 5 votes to suggest a migration for site mods.
Once the 5 votes are received, the system automatically creates a flag for moderator attention with default text of
Migrate to Xxx.SE?or something similar, as @BennySkogberg suggests.
At this point, moderators could then get together and discuss whether or not the best decision is to migrate or just plain delete it if they can't find a fit.
This way meta.ux.stackexchange.com isn't the only choice for migration and allows people to attempt to correctly close a question by choosing to migrate.
