Per this meta.so post, if we want to migrate old questions to gardening now, we need to build a list and coordinate with the Gardening site to get some agreement on a mass-migration. If you're wondering why, we can't migrate questions older than 60 days anymore.

Important notes:

  • We cannot give SE a list of tags, they must be a list of individual posts.
  • This is a one-time request, so we need to be sure everything is included in our list.
  • Related (but predating the "no migrations for old questions" rule): meta.diy.stackexchange.com/questions/347/…

  • @NiallC. Agreed, it's come up several times before. The old plan was to migrate only if needed. But now our choice is to close them as off topic when they show activity or have SE do a preemptive mass migration. I think there are too many good questions out there that shouldn't need to be closed.

  • Honestly, @Steven is right -- but the entire lawn and grass tag needs investigation.

    @Aarthi Agreed, unless someone beats me to it, I'll start digging through a bunch of those tags next week.

A few things we should do:

  • Clean up any dups on DIY.

  • Check for dups on Gardening.

  • Decide if drainage, french drains, and other runoff questions belong on DIY or Gardening.

  • Decide if ponds belong on DIY or Gardening.
