I was looking for a specific post I'd seen before on golfing tips: Tips for golfing in Perl?

I eventually found it on codegolf, not meta.codegolf where it obviously belongs. Yet, apparently it is too old to migrate to meta.codegolf. I have read the reason for this on meta but I disagree that it's applicable here.

What are the options to be able to find such content solely by searching on meta.codegolf?

Tips for golfing in Perl? does not belong on Meta.

This is because Meta is for questions about the site Programming Puzzles & Code Golf, not for questions about Perl.

Furthermore, our help center says that

Non-challenge questions that are are related to solving programming puzzles or a particular type of challenge are also on topic.

which means that they are, in fact, on topic on the main site.
