It has been about a month since the migrate-away options were added as close-reasons to Code Review - Migration paths to other sites
Since migrated-away posts are deleted on the source site after about 30 days, a month is about all the history we get to see the source posts. In addition, the SEDE data has just been refreshed today....
Let's revisit the statistics for this new feature. In the past month:
There have been 9 migrations away. 3 to programmers, 5 to Stack Overflow, and 1 to DBA. DBA is not on our migration path ... out of interest.
Now, of those 9 migrations, how how many community members voted to migrate away? As far as I can tell, none!
All posts migrated away were migrated purely on the whim of a moderator, and not the community. Perhaps someone flagged the posts for migration, but, if flagging for migration is the way to move things, then why have the community migrate-away option at all?
So, if all posts are migrated by moderators anyway, why is there a migration path? It seems that every - single - migration required moderator intervention anyway, why not just make that the normal way to do things?
