I just deleted a post of mine and reposted it on math.overflow. It was a question which was not very well received here it had 1 downvote and 2 upvotes and 1 favorite.

I followed the previous course of action after reading Asking the same question on MSE and MO, which was asked 3 years ago, and deciding I did not want to bother a moderator to migrate the question and since not a lot of people seemed interested in my question(in the sense it would be, supposedly, harder for people to the trace my question back to math.overflow).

Also, I had put a bounty on the question which was awarded back to me and felt a little bit like gaming the system as I was unaware previously that this would happen.

So, I think my question is when is it preferable to migrate over flagging for mods attention. And specifically should there was a bounty should you choose the migrating option? (I am also unaware whether if you migrate you obtain back your bounty which could potentially affect my view on the subject)

PS: I am asking this question after reposting only because of the bounty issue.
