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-...

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 ...

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 ...

Post Moved to Rasberry Pi Site

Yes, Nick tends to knee-jerk migrate any post that merely mentions Raspberry Pi or Arduino, without considering whether the question is really appropriate for the destination site. I've undeleted, ...

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 ...

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 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 ...

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 ...

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.
