See this question. Can someone get whatever mod approved that in here to explain?
I've ocassionaly had the unprovable thought that some at SO treat this site as a dump for things they don't want to deal with, but this one's just silly.
The moderators over at SO are actually very courteous when migrating questions over to us. When they have a questionable migration they ask the Webmaster mods in the Moderator chatroom if we want it or if it should just be closed at SO.
On the other hand, if five SO members with 3,000 rep decide a question is coming here whether it should or not, well, it's coming here whether it should or not. So the real question is how do we deal with that?
Maybe 3000 rep is now too low for a user on SO to be able to vote questions to other sites? We receive a small number of migrations from SO that are completely ridiculous and John Conde is right, they are almost exclusively from 5 users voting to close it and migrate it here.
By my estimates, there are over 7,500 users on SO currently that have over the 3,000 rep that it takes to close and migrate a question.
Also, how does migration from 5 votes work? Does it go to the site that has the most votes as to where it goes? What happens if the vote is split?
