Do migrated questions migrate reputation and badges?.

One of the questions I answered was moved from SO to meta. It was the one answer with the most upvotes I gained. Some were granted after it becoming wiki due to the many answers given, but what about the rest? Will I lose the reputation earned when there is a recalc? And will I gain that reputation on meta when there is a recalc, as it now is wiki?

Not asking because of my ~400 points at stake, just want to know whether this has been taken into account?

I am no quite sure about how it is being handled right now, but I do have an opinion the topic.

Honestly, I think it should make you lose all the rep for the question. Especially if you have enough reputation on the site (maybe >1000?). You should really have read the FAQ by then and you should know which site to post meta stuff on (hint: Not SO.com).


Edit:

In reply to Jon Skeet's question in the comments, yes I believe this applies to answerers as well. They should know better by now as well.

@Jon: Wow, beat me to it. That will teach me to be distracted by a dupe comment! –  GEOCHET Jul 23 '09 at 14:22

I agree for the questioner. What about answerers? Should we take a "you should know better" approach on that front too? I think we probably should... –  Jon Skeet Jul 23 '09 at 14:22
    
That is true, put when this was posted, MSO was still faught, maybe not even thought of by Jeff. –  malach Jul 23 '09 at 14:23
    
@Jon: Yes, I believe the same thing applies for the answerers. –  GEOCHET Jul 23 '09 at 14:24
    
@malach: That makes no difference, the FAQ was clear. No subjective or meta on SO.com. –  GEOCHET Jul 23 '09 at 14:25
    
Subjective is subjective. –  Lance Roberts Jul 23 '09 at 14:28
    
Just to make this clear: I answered and did not ask the question, and the question was tagged sofaq in SO. –  malach Jul 23 '09 at 14:29
