Another bad migration to Arduino

Here's my point-of-view on this issue: The question was not answerable because it did not have anywhere near enough information. That's nothing to do with anybody's expertise. The question was ...

Stop migrating Arduino questions if there's a significant portion of electronics

Part of the reason why (I think) migrations are so frustrating from a community perspective is that there is no recourse if the community disagrees with the migration. In fact, the only way to undo a ...

Poor abused Arduino tag

I think this is fine, as long as the tag doesn't provide context that only exists in the tag. Specifically, some users will ask a question that doesn't mention Arduino at all, but they include the tag ...

Should we have an Arduino tag?

Overlap between sites is fine. A strict "This question belongs on site Y instead of site X" interpretation is not a productive mandate. Olin, for all his Arduino bashing, has answered more questions ...

Stop migrating Arduino questions if there's a significant portion of electronics

I'm a bit skeptical. I think the migration path report tool is pretty bad at the moment, I rarely want to move things to Super User. I don't think adding Arduino to the list without adding a few more ...

The tag is doing better than I thought. By my count, out of the 50 newest questions with this tag, 16 have been closed, and 8 have been migrated. That said, of the ones remaining, I still feel a ...

Arduino.SE is now a full site. Should we add a migration path to it?

This question would be incomplete without migration statistics. The migration statistics report is broken, unfortunately. It doesn't show details about origin and destination. It will be about 90 ...
