One of the reasons mentioned on the voting-to-close dialog is like so:
Questions asking to recommend or find a book, tool, module, theme, distribution, tutorial, or other off-site resource are off-topic for Drupal Answers as they tend to attract opinionated answers and spam. Instead, describe the problem and what has been done so far to solve it.
For module, theme and distribution, these kinds of questions could be a perfect fit for the (fairly new) Software Recommendations site. As confirmed also by:
- the answers to the meta question "Is asking for Drupal modules and/or themes on topic?" on that site.
- the exitings questions related to (+ tagged with) Drupal.
Some questions that could be migration candidates ( 1 ):
- Modules or install profile for scholarly peer review
- Recommend a slideshow module that can create a display from a view?
- Module for cropping user picture immediately
- Drupal Pricing Table Module
- Drupal ExtJS4 (Sencha) integration
- What modules and tutorials should be used to build a booking website?
Some deleted questions (enough rep required to still view them), with a corresponding question on Software Recommendations already ( 2 ):
- https://drupal.stackexchange.com/questions/81068 , and related https://softwarerecs.stackexchange.com/questions/28598 .
- https://drupal.stackexchange.com/questions/166510 , and related https://softwarerecs.stackexchange.com/questions/27647 .
- https://drupal.stackexchange.com/questions/195343 , and related https://softwarerecs.stackexchange.com/questions/28535 .
My feature request: please make Software Recommendations a possible migration target, for the kind of questions described above.
- ( 1 ): These are all "old" questions which have at least 1 answer from a moderator.
- ( 2 ): I had answered these questions before they were deleted, and reposted them on SR.SE after they got deleted on DA.SE. Since on SR.SE none of these questions were closed, or received any downvotes, it makes me believe that this manual migration of these questions have not been perceived on SR.SE as "migrating crap".
