I know they are in beta but the following question begs to be migrated to [linguistics.se].

Distinctive Features of English Dipthongs.

I wonder if our passing relevant questions to other SEs would help them get out of Beta as well.

Normally migration paths are not set up until after the target site is out of Beta. I think the idea is to avoid swamping smaller sites and to give them space to determine their scope.

I don't think Linguistics SE will graduate anytime soon, though, so it's a bit of an odd situation.

    The ELL path was not set up until it had graduated.

    ELL's graduation message says You will become eligible for question migration paths with the rest of the network. It looks like the migration path was opened around Sept 22 '15 and we graduated Sept 10th. (That doesn't mean that moderators weren't migrating questions before that - it just wasn't opened up to everyone)

  • You're answering a question that was posed in 2012, so the claim I don't think Linguistics SE will graduate anytime soon has indeed been verified. AKA "Stating the bleedin' obvious" :)

  • And the exceptional low view count (111times in almost five years) suggests that this is not a burning issue...

  • @Mari-LouA no, just all of a sudden a question that should have been asked elsewhere pops up - english.stackexchange.com/questions/401014/… Jul 20, 2017 at 18:13
