I was very worried when we first decided to allow questions be migrated here from ELU.
Now that it's been several months, how is it going?
I was prompted to ask this question because three questions were just migrated from ELU and at least one of them doesn't seem to follow the very clear "Don't Migrate Crap" rule.
- Has horrid formatting, terrible punctuation and bad capitalization.
I know that we aren't expecting perfection from questions asked here... but ELU needs to be editing these questions for at least basic quality before they are shunted to ELL.
At this point, 9% of the questions migrated here in the last 90 days were rejected... that's nearly one in ten... and I have a feeling that this number is lower than it should be, since many of the questions have a score of zero, which means that they're likely not very good questions.
Here's a couple of examples:
This question has been here for over a week and didn't even attract any comments from regular users to ask for clarifications, the two answers don't have any votes, either... the OP hasn't created an account here...
Do the users here tend to ignore the migrated questions? This type of question usually attracts comments... or votes... something. It's utterly mystifying that this one has no votes.
This question has a downvote as does the answer from a regular user... and it's still open despite not being specific about what part of the sentence is in question... should it not have been closed as needing detail or proofreading? Again, the user hasn't come here and created an account and hasn't responded to requests for clarification.
Here are the 90 day migration stats for anyone under 10K:
Is there anything to do about this or should we do anything about this?
Are we OK with having these questions moved here, regardless of any effort on ELUs part to improve them or make sure that they're actually good fits for ELL?
If not, should we make a request to ELU that they address this? Perhaps before shutting down the pipe entirely we can ask mods to take a more active part in reviewing the migrations or address it in their meta?
If so, how can we make users more enthusiastic about actually addressing them - voting, commenting, answering...
