No, Code Review would not be the best place for that kind of review. The best code for this site, as I see it, is code you consider finished. It works, it's the best you can think of, and you're ready ...

Why was a question suitable for Stack Overflow closed, instead of being migrated
Accepted answer

Actually, it was cross-posted to Stack Overflow, and it has an accepted answer there. You're correct that it belonged there, but there was no need to migrate it since the OP had already posted there. ...

Is "how good is this encryption" in the scope of code review

No, it would not. Security is on topic, but an encryption algorithm is not code. You may explain it with code, but it is really an algorithm. My opinion is that algorithms are a high level design ...

I agree with Robert Cartaino's answer, and would like to add a few notes of my own. A problem I personally face is that many of the questions we have gotten of late have been in web oriented ...

I like this idea, as I have the same issue. Perhaps a second favorite option would work - it would add the question to a list, and remove it once you answer the question. I often use the favorite ...

Hmm, good point. I could see the tag used for questions that want a refactoring reviewed. For example, a post could show the code, show a refactoring of the code, and ask if the refactored code was ...

I have started a topic on meta.SO about this. Honestly, I don't know how much we will be able to do about it. If a question is migrated, we mods can contact the SO mods and have the migration history ...
