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

I cast the final vote to close The Who's Paying for that Development Model.
When I cast it, there were two votes for it being off topic, and two for it being migrated to Programmers SE, this is also what I voted for.

So why was it simply closed as off topic? Is a 3-2 majority not sufficient to get the post migrated? If I had of known my vote would simply get the question closed I would not have voted at all.

Why would you have not voted? – Rebecca Chernoff Sep 15 '11 at 1:51
I was one of the migration votes, but I prefer closed to open in any case. – dmckee Sep 15 '11 at 1:53
@Rebecca - i think it is a perfectly legitimate question, just in the wrong place. I personally didn't want it closed, just migrated. – slugster Sep 15 '11 at 3:36

Migrations from Stack Overflow require a majority of 4 votes, not 3.

I've got the changelog meta answer quickmarked, so it is never more than three keystrokes away. :) – sarnold Sep 15 '11 at 1:58
