We just had a question pop-up at Arqade that was pretty off-topic. It's a game development question, but what little I understand about GameDev is that they don't accept, "How do I get started?" questions, either.
So I was a bit surprised to see one of our mods just up and send it to GameDev. And not at all surprised when it was punted back just as quickly. When asked about this in chat, we're hearing that mods are supposed to be less stingy about migrations, and can't talk about it. Is this new initiative public at all? Arqade's policy includes not migrating (or recommending the asker ask) questions we know aren't on-topic on the suggested site, so this new effort seems to directly conflict with what we believe we should be doing.
Is this something that can be made known to us users? If not, is there a reason it's being kept secret, and community and SE policy that contradict each other? If there's something new happening that our mods are in the know, but we're not, it doesn't really help the community shape the process.
