As I've found out, it's possible under certain conditions to migrate unanswered DevOps questions to our site as lower boundary of the eligibility to do so.
Say migration is from source to target.
- (1) Any user with 3K+ reputation at source is eligible to access the "Migrate to site.." option (this is the case for at least some of our moderators and SO)
- (2) Target that is a pre-defined site from the list of sites which might have been defined before our site existed. => if this still applies, migration is not possible.
As of 2017, the "flag question" option displayed the "off-topic/Migrate to site.." option if you had 3K+ reputation1:
While (1) is easy, if (2) applies, our moderators would need to elaborate how our site can be put on that list.
If this is solved, migrating a couple of questions a day could:
- deliver answers to unanswered questions
- fill up the gap we need to qualify from Beta
Additionally, there might be "too old" questions older than current 60 days limit, which might be worth re-asking or finding ways to override the rule seen from our site's perspective.
1 As you can see, at that time "Software Engineering SE" was called "Programmers SE". :-)
