We don't migrate posts cause they can be answered by professional and enthusiast programmers. We migrate them because they are to do with SO careers, Teams or other products primarily on SO.

Screenshot of migration message. Says "This question was migrated to Meta Stack Overflow because it can be answered by professional and enthusiast programmers. Migrated 34 seconds ago by Journeyman Geek

The current wording is somewhat misleading.

Could we have the wording for migration to this site reviewed and corrected?

    While I agree, this is bit complicated. Currently it's taking it from the same source as the Tour page - after all, Stack Overflow is indeed meant "for professional and enthusiast programmers". Maybe on per-site meta, this can simply be omitted, leaving only "This question was migrated to [site name]", without the "because" part. – Shadow9 Feb 9 at 12:38
  • I think I have seen this behavior before and written a bug report about it. I also think that it was deleted (possibly by me). I think this was due to being an exact duplicate. This would apply here too. Can you please take a look @JourneymanGeek – MEE - codidact.org Feb 9 at 14:40
  • I saw a similar thing on English Language & Usage migrating to English Language Learning, and assumed that it was something specific to that relationship. But I guess this is now network-wide. – Alex Feb 9 at 14:56

  • @MEE-codidact.org can't find that in your deleted posts , and as such, the master – Journeyman Geek Feb 9 at 14:59
  • The old notices would prepend "our discussion site for our site for" before the text on the Tour page. It seems the new notices are not doing that. – Sonic the Anonymous Hedgehog Feb 9 at 19:39
  • It seems that this got missed in testing because ordinarily users never see this text. Moderators, as well as users using the ?noredirect=1 parameter within 30 days, do indeed see it. In my opinion, all things should be refined, even if they're bits that most never see. – Sonic the Anonymous Hedgehog Feb 9 at 19:41
