One of my questions that I recently asked was put on hold because it would be better on the World Building SE, so how do I migrate it there?

  • Tangent: I don't know if you saw, but somebody did a major edit on this question after you deleted it. If you were to undelete it now I think it would work; it's still subjective, but not as opinion-based as it was. – Monica Cellio Jan 31 at 1:33

You can flag to ask for migration, or you can just re-ask the question on the other site. If the question already has answers, in particular (as yours does), then those answers might not work on the other site, so moderators would have to evaluate that. Also, you might need to adjust your question to fit another site, either content or tags. That might not be a big task, but at that point you might as well ask the edited question directly on the other site instead of waiting for moderators to see your flag. Re-asking seems easier for an experienced user (you already know how to go there, read their tour/help, copy your post source for use there, etc).

Flag it for a moderator - if they think the question would indeed be a good fit for the target SE, they'll migrate it.

  • Worth noting that (IIRC) a question can only be migrated from one SE to another if it contains a tag that's already present on both sites. – F1Krazy Jan 30 at 22:40
  • @F1Krazy or a hidden tag. E.g. anything tagged worldbuilding would be migrate-able to Worldbuilding, on that parameter at least, even though they can't have such a tag - all their content would fall under it. – Galastel Jan 30 at 22:45

    Actually, at least last I looked, moderators on the source site can migrate any question (that is not too old) to any site in the network. This doesn't mean they (we) will do so. It's how questions sometimes end up tagged only as "untagged". – a CVn Jan 31 at 20:16
