Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Once I gave one good question about writing a good PHP+HTML code. I gave a bounty, and one guy answered saying that the question was very nice, with very long description. Now, I can't find the question.

Did anybody transfer it, or even delete it? How can that happen without I am informed about it?

I would double check your profile – mkk Aug 28 '11 at 1:17
This is a list of your bounty questions . Not there? – Martin Smith Aug 28 '11 at 1:18
@Martin Smith: No, it's not there, I had checked that before. I can't believe this... – Tom Aug 28 '11 at 1:19
Was it this question? – Tim Stone Aug 28 '11 at 1:21
Yikes. If this can happen by design, something is seriously wrong with the design. – Ted Hopp Aug 28 '11 at 1:22
@Tim Stone: Thank you very much! I can't believe I didn't have notification or something about migrating. I think those questions could still stay in StackOverflow and be redirected when clicked. Thank you again. – Tom Aug 28 '11 at 1:24
@Tom: They do stay on Stack Overflow for a month. – Jeremy Banks Aug 28 '11 at 1:30

The question you were looking for was migrated to Programmers (and then deleted on Stack Overflow). You actually should have been notified of the migration when it happened, although having never experienced this I don't know how reliable the notification is. It's possible too that you just forgot about receiving the notification, since the migration happened several months ago.

The notification should happen as a banner at the top of the screen. Not sure if it ever expires or what happens when the original question is deleted, though. – Adam Lear Aug 28 '11 at 15:42
