This is almost certainly not important enough to unleash the programmers immediately, but I thought I would add it for posterity, and because someone was kind enough to report it on a site meta.

When a question is migrated inside the network, it appears that the question shows up on the main page without detailing what the activity is

The question indicated above with a delightful freehand red ellipsoid should have probably said

migrated 26 minutes ago

in order to follow the pattern of other actions.

  • Was it really migrated at then, or is it just the asking date/time? Commented Oct 2, 2015 at 11:53
  • Im fairly sure it was the time it was migrated in.

As a counterproposal to how this should be fixed...

"migrated (x) minutes ago" is slightly ambiguous. It might be better served if this was reworded to be "migrated here (x) minutes ago" to better relay that a question was brought here from elsewhere.

Here's a screenshot/mockup of how this would appear, taken from a list of recently active Meta SO questions:

Recent activity event text changed to "migrated here," freehand red circled
