For a more general rule, the only time we should recommend moving questions between sites is if the question is off topic for the current site, but would be a good, on-topic question elsewhere. Some sites overlap a little bit. If a question is on topic for two sites, it is the asker's choice which community they ask on. The other thing to remember: Don't ...

Migration paths to outside sites have been closed since at least 2014. From what I understand, migration was mostly used poorly, so the tool was taken away from 3k users. While migration paths outside meta aren't there for regular users, moderators can migrate questions to other sites. If you think a question should be migrated, please flag it for moderator ...

Like Frank pointed out - the main rule of migrations is "don't migrate crap". If a question is good enough to be migrated (and to be honest, this is a very rare occurrence), you can always custom flag it for moderators to take a look, as we have the ability to migrate questions wherever they might need to go. There's no need to set up a bunch of migration ...

I don't think this has to be moved necessarily. While it would be on-topic on SuperUser, as it's a question about computer software, and while there is a good chance that the asker gets competent answers there, it's not necessarily off-topic on this site. To my understanding, Steam classifies as a game-specific utility and questions about that are allowed ...

Running a query against our migrated posts, here's what I came up with: We've migrated a total of 36 posts to SU over the life of our site Two have been rejected. We migrated nine last year. One of which was rejected. From that, I don't believe we have enough migration traffic to really justify a migration path. Granted, some users post their question ...

We're not really in the habit of migrating 10 year old questions, especially ones with several answers, with an asker that has been inactive for over 2 years. If you feel that none of the answers are satisfactory, and you would like some additional answers, then I'd encourage you to just ask your own question over at GameDev.SE. Additionally, it's important ...

Disclaimer: I am just an experienced user who wants to give their opinion. Some more official guidance from moderators is probably more appropriate. First, I want to get our "what topics can I ask about here" page involved: Arqade is for passionate videogamers from all platforms, including consoles, computers, handhelds, and mobile devices. If ...

Looking at the last 5 of your questions on your site with both story-indentification and video-games I agree that no one should be recommending moving them to the Arqade. If any one of those questions were asked here, they would promptly be closed and deleted as they do not meet our strict guidelines for game-identification questions. Even if they did have ...

We close Game Identification questions without an audiovisual artifact because they're just not a good fit for our Q&A format, but that doesn't mean we don't want to help users track down a game. Due to this there's nothing wrong with redirecting users to chat or another site (like reddit.com/r/tipofmyjoystick) which would be better suited to helping ...

The question is older than 60 days and cannot be migrated.

If the game has a scifi/fantasy setting, such identification questions might well be on-topic on https://scifi.stackexchange.com under the story-identification tag.

Questions about specific video games, no matter how technical, are categorically off topic on SU. So, sorry, but I won't be migrating it. You could try a bounty, but our track record with tech questions isn't great.

Following a larger discussion around how we can better help users that visit our site, Arqade now has two faq questions for suggesting good places to go for off-topic Identification and Recommendation questions: My game identification question was closed as off-topic. Where can I ask for help instead? My request for recommendations was closed as off-topic. ...
