Here I expect to be able to choose Biblical Hermeneutics. But the only option available here is

belongs on meta.christianity.stackexchange.com

Shouldn't we be able to recommend migration to Biblical Hermeneutics?

Migration paths are set up only between graduated sites. We've completed our end of this bargain, but until Biblical Hermeneutics graduates we will not be able to have a migration path to or from them.

    Thank you, that's answered my direct question. But this is a bit chicken and egg - by directing questions there we may help it graduate. – Wikis Sep 2 '13 at 12:26

    @Wikis Agree or not, graduation is a requirement for migration paths. Keep in mind that mods can migrate to any site so if you think something is a much better fit there, feel free to flag it as such. – wax eagle Sep 2 '13 at 12:27
  • What about Judaism? We've migrated there before. – fredsbend Sep 2 '13 at 16:29

    @fredsbend we could request one, but the migrations to there are pretty rare, and I believe they have to be handled carefully as the tone of the two sites is pretty different – wax eagle Sep 2 '13 at 17:17

    @waxeagle Yeah, I tried to use the site recently and was put off by the stringent on-topic rules. They have no "Brothers we are not Christians" post. In fact, they have quite a few posts saying the opposite. Though their about page says "answer everything about Judaism" that is actually not even close to the case. – fredsbend Sep 2 '13 at 20:31

    @Wikis: For more information about migration paths, please see my answer about a BH => C path. It is a chicken-and-egg problem in more ways than one. The truth is, default paths don't mean too much on smaller sites, like this one. The moderators don't need an extra hint to know where the flagger intended a question to go. ;-) – Jon Ericson Sep 4 '13 at 15:27

    @fredsbend: FYI: I've had good luck asking earnest questions and all my answers are accepted. YMMV. I think the key is to show an interest in Judaism itself. – Jon Ericson Sep 4 '13 at 15:52
  • @fredsbend, if you wish to discuss in more detail the content of your comment of 2013-09-02 20:31:13Z, I invite you to raise your concerns in Judaism Stack Exchange's chat room. – msh210 Jun 22 '14 at 5:08
  • I know this is an old topic, but because the case still remains the same, perhaps, it's all the more relevant. Beta sites probably aren't allowed because they haven't been deemed a successful alternative yet. If that's the case, and if Hermaneutics is still in Beta, then perhaps it follows that there is not yet, by SE standards, a sufficiently distinct better option for the question. I just wanted to add that thought in there since it's been several years. – DKing Jun 21 '17 at 15:36
