Is it okay to cross post questions on MO and MSE anymore?

How about ask a question on MSE after posting on MO but not getting answers, or vice versa?

    $\begingroup$ IIRC the OP can request migration (which might be a reasonable way to do, if he does not get any answers). See the discussion here: What, when and will we migrate questions to MO 2.0? $\endgroup$ Commented Jun 25, 2013 at 5:36

Short answer : no.

(By the way, it has never been "okay" to simultaneously cross-post questions on MSE and MO. We've been requesting users to stick with one site and wait for a reasonable amount of time before trying to ask on the other site.)

Longer answer: As of today, a question that you may want to move between the two fora now can be properly migrated! The usual rules apply (only questions less than a month two months old can be migrated directly, other requires intervention of a higher power).

    $\begingroup$ As a side remark: because of the high overlap of users between the two sites, it is quite likely that a cross post will be noticed and then migrated and then closed as duplicate... $\endgroup$ Commented Jun 25, 2013 at 7:34

    $\begingroup$ @RobertRauch Flag for moderator attention and state so - there is no migration path yet so you can't manually select MO as the desired migration destination. Mods can migrate to any SE site though $\endgroup$ Commented Jul 1, 2013 at 14:57
