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

When questions are migrated to another site, do any flags on that question (and any of its answers) get migrated to the other site?

Like "belongs on Meta"? – Ladybug Killer Nov 9 '09 at 19:11
Yup. Those would be the ones. – squillman Nov 9 '09 at 19:26

From memory, no they don't. I say that because "we" regularly migrate posts from SO to MSO after they get flagged, and I don't recall having to clear any flags on MSO. It makes sense really - quite likely a migrated posts is flagged for migration, and it will soon get attention on the other site.

My ♦ only extends to SO and MSO, so it might be different in other scenarios, but I doubt it.

No. Flags, open and close votes are not migrated. The question, its up/down votes, the answers and their up/down votes, and the comments with their upvotes are copied. Everything else is a clean slate.

It will get flagged quickly enough if there's a problem.
