I was trying to close this question about Postgresql: Getting locked out of Postgresql databases. The question didn't have any GIS content, so I thought it should be migrated to the dba.stackexchange.com site. One person had posted an answer recommending the OP come back at some point and do this, but I thought it would save time.
Upon choosing close, and choosing the Off-Topic option, this is what is shown to me.
It seemed that the 4th option, "This question belongs on another site in the Stack Exchange network", would be appropriate. Upon choosing that option, here is what I see:
The only option for a different site to migrate to is the meta.gis.stackexchange.com site. The "Vote to close" button is grayed out unless you choose this option.
So, for my question: If the suggestion is that the question belongs on another Stack Exchange network site, then why is the Meta site for GISse, the only available option?
I suppose it could be a means of control so that the moderators are the only people who actually migrate questions, but I thought it was worth asking, for clarity if nothing else. It seems to offer something that you are then not allowed to do. I do understand this question may not be appropriate for the Meta.GISse site, but it seemed the best starting place.
