My question What are the correct pronouns for referring to someone whom I have never met in person when the gender is apparent? has a banner

migrated from english.stackexchange.com  Oct 25 at 0:44.

I remember that original question on english.stackexchange What are the correct pronouns for referring to someone whom I have never met in person when the gender is apparent? had at least 2 answers and a few comments, that are not visible now on a new site.

According to What is migration and how does it work?

Migration preserves the current revision of the question, all its answers, any comments on any post, as well as most of the votes. ….
Answers on the origin site are deleted immediately upon question migration. ... The answers will be visible on the destination question.

Can you explain, why answers/comments were not copied for this question?

    Based on the timeline two answers have been migrated. – rene Oct 29 at 14:04
  • Thanks @rene, I wasn’t aware about timeline. And in the “view oldest answers first” mode I was (again) confused that accepted answer is shown first regardless of the actual time of creation order – MiFreidgeim SO-stop being evil Oct 29 at 14:17

One of the answers was deleted by its author prior to migration. Deleted answers aren't migrated.

  • Your info about self-deleted answer and rene’s link to timeline explain why I missed the answers, but I also remember couple of comments to my question, that I couldn’t see now. Were they also deleted by the same person, as it was conversation with him/her, and I suggested to write an answer instead of a sequence of comments? – MiFreidgeim SO-stop being evil Oct 29 at 14:28

    @MichaelFreidgeim If those comments were under the answer, they would have been deleted with the answer. I cleaned up one comment under the question recommending Interpersonal Skills for your question since it was migrated instead to ELL and it seems like you were more focused on the language than the interpersonal relationships. – ColleenV parted ways Oct 29 at 18:48

    Yeah, there were a dozen comments on the question, all deleted prior to migration @michael – Shog9 Oct 29 at 19:17
