My recent community wiki answer on ELU, on migration to ELL, changed to normal.

Is this normal?

It's possible that some people on ELL will think that I'm copypasting others' comments for rep.

  • Probably relevant: MSE on migrating CW answers Related as well: MSE on migrating CW questions.

  • @AndrewLeach Thanks, but looks like I'd already visited those pages a while ago. My votes are already there. But those are relevant only to a time when posts were automatically converted to CW.

  • @AndrewLeach I now think it's better suited to MSE. Should it be migrated there? You please decide and take action.

  • It's OK here at the moment. The point of the MSE/answers link was that CW migration was heavily reworked so that the original author didn't get lost in translation. I suspect that means that the original author is deliberately restored. I'll make this a bug report here, I think, so staff get to see it easily, and they may confirm what's going on. It should be open to you to make the migrated answer into CW yourself, of course.

  • @AndrewLeach Okay, you know better. If it's best here, let it stay. And I'll keep the "normalized" migrated answer as it is, for reference.
