Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 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

I had asked a question on SuperUser which was then transferred to 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

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
