I had asked a question on SuperUser which was then transferred to gaming.stackoverflow.com. I didnt have an account on this webpage and when I created the account for this sub-site, I wasn't gifted the rep for the upvotes on my transferred question.

TLDR; Questions transferred dont give upvote reputation.

ALSO My question was transferred to this other site, but this wasn't mentioned anywhere on SuperUser and I had to do a category search just to find it again. So having some sort of notification of a question being transferred would be good

Thanks

Usually taken care of by batch recalcs. –  MPelletier Dec 26 '10 at 18:06

Your rep wasn't properly recalculated - this has been done.

Also, we now inform a question owner about a migration; we'll be inserting a header message with the migration details, linking to both the original question and its new place. Like "Your question ... was migrated to ...":

Migration notification on top of the screen

Maybe also inform people who have stared a question that the question was moved as well? Since they stared it to get notifications... –  Kurru Dec 27 '10 at 0:04
    
Any details about those details? Many of us will never see it, but still curious! –  Arjan Dec 27 '10 at 13:20
    
@Arjan Probably something like this. ok perhaps not - maybe similar to the "You have a new badge" messages ? –  Sathya Dec 27 '10 at 20:46

@Sathya, surely similar to the new badge message (I assume it's not just visible with the question itself, but on any page until closed). But still wondering about the text itself. –  Arjan Dec 28 '10 at 8:15
    
@Jarrod, I think the topbar notification makes Please make it more obvious when a post is migrated to be [status-completed]? Feel free to post the example there ;-) –  Arjan Dec 28 '10 at 8:31
    
@Arjan Much appreciated! –  Sathya Jan 17 '11 at 2:57
    
You're informing the question owner, what about the people who've answered the question? –  robertc May 16 '11 at 23:51
