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 asked a question and after a second realized it was better for programmers, so I deleted it and then asked it on programmers. Would it have been better to vote to migrate it or is it irrelevant? The question is here.

It depends I guess. If you see that early, delete it. If you waited some time, migration will be better as it will leave a trace on SO for followers to find the new question.

If it is already answered : migration is mandatory so as not to lose the answer.
