This question was migrated to matheducators SE, when it should have been migrated to math SE.

https://matheducators.stackexchange.com/questions/7937/question-on-galois-theory

I feel like we should spend a bit more time making sure we migrate to the right place once; if we don't, then we just kick the can to the next Stack Exchange to have a bunch of users and a moderator on that SE close/migrate again.

    aeismail can speak for himself, but I'm pretty sure this was just a mistake in the migration. Matheducators is clearly the wrong destination for this site. I don't think policy is needed to fix what was probably just aeismail's not being aware that the matheducators site even existed. – eykanal Apr 21 '15 at 15:55

The migration to Mathematics Educators was an accident resulting from trying to do something on a different device than I normally use. I meant to put it into Mathematics (where it has now been sent), but "Mathematics Educators" was selected. I tried to delete "Educators," thinking the system would be smart enough to see the match with "Mathematics," but apparently it's not. You actually have to select it from a dropdown (which is a complete mess on the mobile interface).

    I'm fine with it being an accident, but according to Nate Eldridge, it would be unsuitable for migration to mathematics as well, as it doesn't meet their guidelines, as it is homework help. If it's a bad question for the place we want to move it to, then moving it there isn't helping that Stack Exchange either. It's a primary reason why Stack Overflow no longer migrates anything to Code Review, because most of the stuff moved ended up not meeting CRSE requirements either. – Compass Apr 21 '15 at 16:14
