The tag , being about a way of marking up HTML documents so search engines can add rich data to their results, seems like it's a better fit over at webmasters.se. Should the schema.org questions be migrated over there?

Do you mean migrating all the existing questions with that tag? – kiamlaluno Jan 29 '12 at 20:51
yes I do. I'm sorry I didn't clear that up. – Hamlet Jan 29 '12 at 20:56
Migrating all of them? I don't think so, too much of a hassle especially for older questions. – BoltClock's a Unicorn Jan 29 '12 at 21:07
Some of these questions may actually be related to programming. Definitely shouldn't batch migrate them all. – Goran Jovic Jan 29 '12 at 21:48
Not all of them, mayby, but questions like this one: stackoverflow.com/questions/7889199/… might be more ontopic at webmasters.se – Hamlet Jan 29 '12 at 22:19

Out of the 20 questions tagged there are only 5 unanswered, yet only 5 questions score 1 or more vote. So if your reasoning for migration is to get greater attention, then yes flag for migration (on a case by case basis).

On the other hand WebMasters does not have a schema.org tag but for whichever questions do contain "schema.org" (16 questions) there are a relatively high number of votes and views.

What you risk by asking for a migration is the OP of the questions and answers losing ownership until they associate their accounts on WebMasters

The better approach would be to migrate a good quality question that was recently posted. Migrating in bulk just puts monotonous overhead for moderators on both sides and in addition floods the WebMasters home page.
