Why was this post migrated to mechanics.se?

It shouldn't have been. Migration should only happen when something is OFF TOPIC HERE, and on topic there. This is clearly an on topic Electrical Engineering question. The mod who migrated it single-...

Can we add the option to migrate questions to DIY?

A quick look at the list of questions migrated to DIY (not available to all users) suggests that it is a decent migration candidate: DIY is the migration target a significant number of the questions ...

Why was this question migrated to Ask Different?

I really think this question should have been disposed of locally, without resorting to migration. Migration was meant as a favour for the question, not a punishment. By migrating a question, you're ...

Look before you migrate

Rules about cross-posting are rather clear (Is cross-posting a question on multiple Stack Exchange sites permitted if the question is on-topic for each site?): cross-posting is highly discouraged, and,...

Don't Migrate Garbage

I'm the mod who migrated it. Questions should not be migrated unless they are absolutely, positively, 100% appropriate for the destination site as-is I respectfully disagree. You cannot expect ...

Why was this question migrated to Mechanics.SE?

Comment by dim: [..] I totally disagree with the way Passerby asserts his points, but I also really think this migration wasn't justified. I think it was migrated primarily because the question was ...

Why was this question sent to DIY?

I totally agree after looking at the situation, that question should not have been migrated. I am wondering why a message was posted on our meta at all, typically a moderator simply checks the "...

Why would a question about HPS lighting be off topic in Electrical Engineering

Do you want an EE or an electrician to answer your question? While we get some cross-pollination -- when it comes to mains electricity, EE's generally are familiar with the design issues, either for ...

Why was https://electronics.stackexchange.com/questions/305334/ migrated?

Raspberry Pi was mentioned right in the title, and then there was code shown that of course is specific to RPi. Perhaps after careful reading it might be possible to find that there is a basic ...

More migration options

I don't know if it's changed or I just have some issue, but I NEVER see anything but the meta group for a migration option, and the meta group is usually not a good option when I think of migrating. ...

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

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 ...

Why was this question about a shim for a pcb migrated to photo.se?

Everybody needs to put aside their "crap question" biases for a minute. There is nothing there that says "migrate me to Photography". We have a winner for Dumb Migration of the Month.

AVR question migrated to Arduino.SE

A good test whether a question is a arduino user-level question is whether you can replace all mention of "arduino" with "microcontroller" or "microcontroller development board". If the question ...

Check for dupes before you migrate!

I migrated the question. No act of kindness goes unpunished :-). I THINK I migrated it before the duplicate was answered, but my antipodean time zone and the lack of detail on the migrate time makes ...

You just need to close it, and it will revert back to the site from which it came.

Possible migration from sound.SE

The question, as it stands, would only be marginally suitable for EE.SE, because it requires us to speculate about the internal implementations of commercial products. The best source for that kind of ...

Each and every "the close menus aren't right" results in "there's little we can do about it." Perhaps some higher level work is in order

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 ...

Why was this question about a shim for a pcb migrated to photo.se?
