Why is it that I can close a question as "better suited to Meta", but not as "better suited to ELL" or "better suited to Writers.SE"?

screenshot of all available migration targets when closing a question, which only lists meta.english.SE

Should we add (at least) ELL and Writers to the list of available migration targets for flagging and closing?

Only mods can recommend migration to a site that is still in beta, presumably because the scope of the site is still being defined. This has come up frequently all across the network, but I do not think there is any chance of changing it.

    ELL and Writers are still in beta? Maybe feeding them some more questions from ELU would help them.

  • @Mitch; actually, Writers has gone back to beta; perhaps they need more experts. Aug 17, 2014 at 22:08
