No I think I'm with Jesse on this one. Threads outside your forum don't belong to it. Even if the subject does. They are beyond your abilities for a reason. There is no way for the board to detect whether a thread's subject falls under the domain of a specific forum or not, so it can't automatically provide moderation abilities depending on the subject. The only other option is to give the move ability to just any moderator from anywhere, which obviously makes only sense for global moderators.

Asking the appropriate moderator to take action is the only thing you can do, which at the same time provides a way to get a second opinion on whether moving a particular thread is the right thing.

Words come in all sizes. But even if they fit you,
they might not come at appropriate times.

Good for everyone is finding yourself first,
and then the good in others second.

I would recall a new moderation group, between normal moderation and global moderation, where those can move threads from different forums.
But maybe indeed I'm asking things a global moderator should do...

It seems so. A global moderator as in the name, is specifically for things where "jurisdiction" is unclear or dubious. What you're asking is clearly concerning more than one forum

But.

Is there a specific place where you feel you need this ability the most? Maybe you could ask simply to be a moderator of that place if that is appropriate, and it would solve your question. It is definitely posible to move a thread from one of the forums you're a moderator of, to a different forum that you're also a moderator of. Just an idea.
