I've just been reading a bunch of questions on the various sites regarding the moving and closing of questions. The one point that really stands out is that not everyone is happy about how frequently questions get moved to another site, whether they are appropriate to that site or not.
I imagine that when these sites were a bit younger 5 votes to move or close seemed a reasonable number due to the small number of users with sufficient rep to cast those votes. Now that we have a lot more 3K+ members, should the number of votes required for an action be increased?
I'm also wondering if a move should require more votes than a close in order to discourage or reduce the number of inappropriate moves, which are having a detrimental effect on each of the sites.
I'm thinking that something like 8 votes to lose and 10 votes to move might be in order. Opinions?
After reading the responses so far I'm thinking that it might be more appropriate for the number of votes required for an action to be related to the number of users with voting rep. I think that should make the impact of a few trigger happy individuals less significant.
