How are questions from SO imported on Magento SE ?

I first thought it was only old questions when Magento SE was released but this one is from April 21st: https://magento.stackexchange.com/questions/112037/migration-from-magento-1-to-magento-2

Normal users only see some predefined migration paths.

For Magento.SE there is only one, to Meta.Magento.SE

For StackOverflow it looks like this:

To migrate posts to different sites, you have to flag them because only moderators can do that.


When closing a question you can specify that the question belongs to an other website in the SE network.
If the question gets closed with that specified reason it gets migrated.

  • Do you need a special privilege to do so ? Because I don't see the "belongs on another site in the Stack Exchange network" option when I close a question May 24, 2016 at 15:33
  • You don't see one under the "off topic" reason?

  • Nope that's all I see: i.stack.imgur.com/xFMX8.png May 24, 2016 at 15:35
  • Maybe it's only for moderators? I'm not sure.
