Can we have https://softwarerecs.stackexchange.com/ added as a close -> Off-Topic because -> Question belongs on another site option? Right now it only has this meta site as an option, but a lot of the time we close the question as just off topic when we can migrate the question to a stack exchange where questions like that are answered.

Current example that lead to this question: https://gaming.stackexchange.com/questions/193670/source-engine-map-editor-that-runs-under-linux

    I don't think that would be a good idea; softwarerecs is still in beta, and actually has rather strict requirements for questions. The one question that's been migrated got rejected.

This is a bad idea, because questions asked here will very rarely be even close to matching what Software Recommendations requires from their questions.

It is a much better idea to point to that site in the comments and highlight their question requirements so the person can ask a good on-topic question over there.


It is by design impossible to have beta-sites on the migration options.

Also I would guess that game-recommendations are not well-recieved on software-recs, since they can't really fulfil their question requirements, especially the point "Features"
