This question is not the first to arrive here from EL&U, and it is not the first where the person who asked the question "does not exist".
Of course this makes sense, as the user has made an account on EL&U, and not (yet) on ELL.
As I am very inexperienced in asking questions here, and as inexperienced in having my questions migrated, I am wondering if a user who has his question migrated will easily find it back on a site where he has no account, or if the question is effectively "orphaned".
If the question is orphaned, as seems to happen (whether because the user can not find his question back, or whether he has lost interest and doesn't feel like creating an account here), is the migration actually useful?
Yes it is useful, because we answer question not just for the asker, but for anyone with the same or a similar question in the future.
No it is not, because the asker never gets to see his question answered.
In general, if the question begs more questions (clarification, context), it is unlikely that that context or clarification is actually given, as the person who normally would give those is not registered and cannot provide those answers. So any "orphaned question" that is not clear enough to be answered will (should?) be closed as "unclear what you're asking" or similar - which means that migration was just a stay of execution.
Any thoughts on this?
