Yes, I agree -- there is good content on that site that would also fit here, so we should help them move it here if they want. Some questions don't fit here; they do have some questions that are about verbal technical communication rather than writing, and some others that might not match up with our scope. But there's a lot that does fit, and there aren't ...

All five close votes were to migrate the question to English and it was migrated. It appears that it was then closed on English, bouncing it back to us. This isn't super-easy to see, but the revision history shows it being locked and then unlocked, which I think is the migration -- it was locked here went sent there, and when they rejected it it was ...

From a quick look at recent migrated-away question statistics, the vast majority of the questions we get which are migrated away from the site go to English Language & Usage (which, given that that and Writing Meta are the only two migration targets available to the community, isn't terribly surprising). Only a small minority of questions that do get ...

Beta sites don't usually get custom migration targets. (We got EL&U as an exception to the usual rules, years ago.) The last time we looked there weren't enough questions flowing from Writing to Worldbuilding to make the case for another target, but I haven't reviewed the current data. In the absence of a custom close reason, you can always bring up ...

Yes we should get one A migration path to Worldbuilding would be super useful. I think there would be a decent number of question that would use in in VTC reasons. I suggest we use this post to gather examples that should/could have used it: a super huge tree being sucked in by a black hole

An ELU mod writes (on the suitability of the question for ELU): While discrete questions of grammar are probably more suited to ELU than writers, in this particular case the question would probably end up rejected by being closed. Using asyndeton [omitting all ands in a list] or polysyndeton [putting and between all elements in a list] is not really a matter ...

(Context: I'm a contributor on Meta Stack Exchange, and I wrote this answer to Monica Cellio's question there.) The migration was automatically rejected because the sole tag used on it, academic-writing, doesn't exist over on the English site. As such, when normal users vote to migrate, the migration will be automatically rejected. On the other hand, if a ...

Could we include a search bar to pick any SE site to migrate to instead of just 2 options? This is actually what we mods have. While regular users have only a limited list of options, moderators can migrate a question to any site on the network they choose - even other sites' Metas! Of course, since my close-votes are binding, I have to be absolutely ...

In order to have other migration paths, we need to graduate. Related: Writing.SE clamours for graduation What you can do in the meantime is flag the question, and under "in need of moderator intervention" write where you think the question should go. It takes time - we only have three moderators, and they're not on 24/7, but eventually they get to it.

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 ...

Stack Exchange generally resists requests to add to this list (ELU was already an exception for us). However, if there's data to support a request, we can ask for this. The best way to approach a proposal to add to the migration list is to post a meta question for one specific site and include links to questions that either were or should have been ...

Thanks to @AndrewLeach for the ELU perspective. I agree that the question is probably more stylistic than it is grammar so I think we'll leave it where it is. I've added the 'style' tag to the question.

Moderators have the power to add additional target sites to the list that you have quoted (except on beta sites). As already suggested, you could raise a proposal to add a specific site. If questions are regularly being migrated to a site that is not on the list, then adding it makes sense. Moderators are provided with a lot of guidance regarding migration ...
