The question https://skeptics.stackexchange.com/questions/18277/is-this-pseudo-science-or-real-code-found-in-superstring was migrayed from Physics.SE. It also migrated its comments, two of which have a "-1" declaration. At this time the score of the question is -1. I am wondering if the score is the score from physics.SE or was it migrated with a score of 0 and then downvoted by our users?

If the former is the case, I think that question that are migrated should have their score reset, as different sites on the SE network vote on question for different reasons.

Migrated questions are migrated with their votes:

  • According to this the score for questions with a negative score is reset.

  • To others as confused as I was: @Ilya's reference shows downvotes are removed. ChrisW's reference shows upvotes are retained.
