Steps: Click "flag" for a question. Choose "should be closed", then "off-topic because" and then "This question belongs on another site in the Stack Exchange network". I, at least am then shown two options for "another site": "belongs on electronics.meta... " and "belongs on superuser.com".

But say it belongs, IMO, on neither, or even specifically, on, say, "Signal Processing"? How does one indicate that?

If it's off-topic, then close it as off-topic.

If it's a good question that is off-topic, then you can flag it using the "Other" line and a moderator can review it for migration.

    \$\begingroup\$ OK. I was trying to understand the purpose of the choice: "belongs on another site" on stackexchange, yet not actually being presented with a useful list of these other sites. Why offer that choice at all? \$\endgroup\$ – mike65535 Oct 11 '18 at 16:00

    \$\begingroup\$ @mike65535 Migrating questions haphazardly causes a mess on both sites, so the list of sites you can suggest migration to is restricted. Mods have the full list of sites for migration. \$\endgroup\$ – W5VO Oct 11 '18 at 16:10

    \$\begingroup\$ Understood, but my question stands: Why offer any choice, if the Mods are going to take care of it? \$\endgroup\$ – mike65535 Oct 11 '18 at 16:16

    \$\begingroup\$ @mike65535 The options that you get in the "belongs on other site" don't require moderator intervention. They work by vote. \$\endgroup\$ – Nick Alexeev Oct 11 '18 at 17:20

    \$\begingroup\$ I really think that Arduino, Physics and Signal Processing should be on that list, instead of Superuser. But that's another question. \$\endgroup\$ – pipe Oct 12 '18 at 6:51

    \$\begingroup\$ @pipe By the numbers, DIY probably could be an option (people looking for an electrician, not a EE). Arduino is the next most likely one, but I'm not sure I trust that without a moderator filter. \$\endgroup\$ – W5VO Oct 12 '18 at 17:46
