I saw this user's profile. 3 out of 4 old questions were migrated from Stack Overflow to other sites and the 4th one does not fit Stack Overflow either and was already closed.

Do migrated questions count towards the question ban or could a user just go on and ask off-topic question that get migrated?

  • Two out of four. Even without those questions, the account would probably still be question-banned. Your ability to ask on the correct site is just as important as your ability to ask a good question. – user102937 Jan 4 '14 at 18:04

    But when I click 3 questions I get redirected to other sites. Why is it only 2 out of 4? – juergen d Jan 4 '14 at 18:06

    His comment on his most recent question just smacks of complete ignorance. It is probably good his question did not get migrated as he seems like he won't learn to ask on the appropriate site unless he does it himself. – psubsee2003 Jan 4 '14 at 19:12
  • Migration stubs are deleted once they are already more than 30 days old, and the fact that a question is deleted doesn't count towards a ban if it's more than 30 days old once it's deleted. – Sonic the Anonymous Hedgehog Feb 21 '19 at 20:43
  • @Sonic I think it's 60...? – iBug says Reinstate Monica Feb 21 '19 at 21:05

    @ɪBᴜɢ No, it's 30, according to the ban FAQ. – Sonic the Anonymous Hedgehog Feb 21 '19 at 21:20
  • I must have mixed it up with the Curious badge family. – iBug says Reinstate Monica Feb 21 '19 at 21:21
