Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Should this question have been migrated from StackOverflow to CodeReview? OP was asking a fairly specific question about how to do something with jQuery; he wasn't simply asking for feedback on his code.

Trigger: "The following solution looks like it needs refactoring" – random Dec 12 '11 at 16:54
Looks like it had a good outcome. Two answers with upvotes, one accepted answer. What's the problem? – Robert Harvey Dec 12 '11 at 17:08
@Robert - not so much a problem, just wondering if migrating this was really appropriate. – Adam Rackis Dec 12 '11 at 17:12
If it was a productive move, it was appropriate. Granted, one can't always judge whether or not a question will be received well on another site, but this example seems illustrative. – Robert Harvey Dec 12 '11 at 17:14

I believe so, as I migrated it over.

The key indicators are in the line that random points out (emphasis mine):

The following solution looks like it needs refactoring

So the poster has a working solution and is looking to refactor it.

In my mind, that makes it a much better fit for Code Review.
