I asked a question about the usage of a particular phrase:
In what regions or countries would this usage be considered correct, and where would it be considered incorrect?
I attempted to word the question so as to permit a reality- rather than opinion-based answer; I may or may not have been successful in that. But either way I feel like the theme of the question was emphatically on-topic at ELU, per the help page:
Questions on the following topics are welcomed here:
- Word choice and usage
- Dialect differences
And it should not have been migrated to ELL. Note that ELL's "what is on-topic" page lists exactly the same bullet points as ELU's, minus "etymology." But from the meta.SE answer discussing migration:
Don't migrate for the sake of migration. We only migrate questions because they are not a good fit on the original site. It is perfectly possible for a question to be good fits [sic] on multiple sites, but that is not a reason to migrate it elsewhere, unless the OP specifically requests it. As a general rule, if someone asks a question here, and it's a good fit here, it should stay here.
My question was in no way about learning (I know what the phrase means) or correctness in general (the phrase is correct, in my dialect, and I know that fact). It was about regional variance and prevalence.
