I asked a question on Programmers.SE:

Is it better to put more logic in a for loop condition, or to use a while loop?

Which got migrated to CodeReview.SE:

Is it better to put more logic in a for loop condition, or to use a while loop?

But... the Programmers.SE one no longer is listed as migrated.

What happened?

It was reopened and unlocked, and the migration history was cleared about a day later. Assumedly, a discussion determined that the question should've stayed on Programmers.

Hmm.. strange. Wonder if there's a way to migrate the CR answers back to – Billy ONeal Apr 6 '11 at 19:49
@Billy I don't have a lot of hope for a "yes" answer, but I'll make a quick check on your behalf. ♪ – Grace Note Apr 6 '11 at 19:50

I cleared the migration history on the question and reopened it as I assumed, from the tone of the discussions on Meta Code Review, that it wasn't wanted over there.

I didn't think any more of it and didn't go back to check on the state of the discussion.

I can reclose the question if you want.

Or if you want ask a Code Review mod to migrate their version back, I'll merge it back in with the original and then after deleting the merged stub on Programmers and migrated stub on Code Review you'll never know it had left.

Nah - not a problem. Just didn't know how it happened (lol) – Billy ONeal Apr 6 '11 at 20:26
Yes, if you prefer, I'll migrate it back from CR. – Ghost User Apr 6 '11 at 20:30
@Billy - if you want the Code Review version migrating back please let a mod know by flagging the question on Code Review. – ChrisF Apr 6 '11 at 21:04
