I recently voted to close Norway historic data as I personally felt it was off topic and more ideally suited for the Open Data SE site. When I chose close, then off topic and then the option that it is for another part of the SE network I was offered up only the GIS meta SE site. I don't know if this is a bug? I would have thought if you are explicitly stating it is for another part of the SE network you would have been given the choice to select one or at least not forced to lump it into the meta site as that would have been wholly inappropriate.
Am I missing something? Does GIS SE think that if it is flagged as off topic then by default they are all meta questions?
