This is my sequence:

  1. Try to find answer to question in the internet
  2. Find the most appropriate hub at StackExchange (may be a little change the question for completely correspond to that hub)
  3. Get my answer from people
  4. Accidentally find Area 51 hub
  5. find more appropriate pre-beta hub in Area 51 for my question
  6. Copy-paste text of question to that pre-beta hub, and add comment with link to that question in appropriate hub.

I don't like (6). Is there built-in solution for create pre-beta hub question from link to question in other hub?

Is there built-in solution for linking to that question with answers in other hub?

I'm not entirely sure I understand what you are trying to do, but… there is nothing in Area 51 that involves answering questions or linking to answers elsewhere or anything that involves answers.

Proposals are not part of a Q&A site. The task at hand is to help define what would be on and off topic for a proposed site. Comments are there to help improve the questions, not to answer them, so there's nothing in Area 51 that should connect the "example questions" being proposed with answers or proposed answers or where they can be found elsewhere, etc, etc. That is entirely outside the purpose of Area 51.

See What is the rationale for deleting answers?

I hope that answers your question. If I missed the point of your post, please let me know. Thanks.

  • Thank you, I understand you answer. “These questions can be properly answered soon enough… when the Q&A site is created.” But what if it was already answered somewhere, and I know about it? Would it be wonderful to have a link to that page, for full-understanding question's and site's on and off topic?

    @yalov No because example questions are only vague question stubs without any substance or detail. There's no vetting to say if the answer-link actually answers their question or if you're just guessing it's close enough. There's no wiki-editing features to fix it if it doesn't, and there's no voting or notifications or any of the features that make it a Stack Exchange site. If we're willing to dispense with all the features that make a Stack Exchange site "work", then why bother creating the Stack Exchange site at all? Commented Mar 27, 2017 at 20:06
