  • On the Help Center page ["How to ask a great question"](https://meta.codidact.com/help/how-to-ask) (This link points to the Codidact Meta version, but this question points to all the versions of this page in all other communities, too)
  • Under the subheading "Make sure your question is in scope"
  • Second paragraph.
  • > If your question isn't in scope for this site, you can check out our [list of communities](https://codidact.com) to see if another site fits your needs. If what you're looking for isn't there, you can always propose a new site on [Codidact Meta](https://meta.codidact.com).
  • Notice the last line. It says that users may propose a new site on Codidact Meta. The link points to the "Q&A" category.
  • Even the "Site Proposals" category of Meta says
  • > Please use our new [proposals site](https://proposals.codidact.com/posts/288366) instead of posting here. Proposals already here are invited to migrate. Thanks!
  • According to my opinion, if the final destination is the proposals site, then why not just directly link to it in the Help Center docs?
