Allow moving a Flow topic to a different page
Closed, DuplicatePublic

Description

Use cases:

  • As an experienced user who replies to questions from new users, I want to be able to move a new topic to a different page (as a new topic, not as a reply to an existing topic) from where it was initially posted, so that the right people can answer the question.
  • As a user who watches technical village pumps, I want general questions about templates, gadgets or the MediaWiki software itself (full topics) to be moved to those tech pages, so that I can have a centralized page for replying to them.

Some times users use the wrong communication channel for asking their questions. Flow should follow the example of its predecessor (LQT) and let us ensure they will still get an answer, even if they mistakenly use e.g. Wikipedia's main page to suggest a change to a specific article, to report a typo in its text, or to ask something about an error in a template.

It will need an option to leave a placeholder/pointer at the original location, as LQT does, and as is done in wikitext discussions.
