I just tried to vote to close a question because it belongs on another SE site, in my opinion. When trying to vote I was forced to designate the other SE site that I think the question belongs in, but the only available choice was ham.meta.SE, but that's not the site that I had in mind.

Is this something that the moderators control? If so, then I respectfully suggest that the moderators give us a few more options. If not, then it feels like a bug...

(For the record, the other site that I had in mind was electronics.SE.)

Apparently the feature to set up migration paths is not available to "beta" sites (found in a footnote in this discussion of migration).

I didn't know that, Rob. If there is a way for a mod to change this, I am not aware of it.

However, before we migrate a question, we usually ask permission first in the site's chat room. I did that a few days ago on this question (also in chat.electronics.SE), but nobody said okay. And there were not enough flags, etc. by others to close it.

However, a regular on that site posted an answer to it.

    $\begingroup$ Great, I learned something. No worries about not migrating it right away, that would be rude. But given that it's been three days, I had no trouble with the idea of migrating the question though ;) $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @rclocher3 If you accept Kevin's answer, then the community bot won't regularly bring it to the top. And a status-completed and/or status-by-design tag can be added to your question. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ Right, done, thanks for the reminder @MikeWaters, I'd forgotten to accept an answer. $\endgroup$
