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

Why was the question status box changed from the normal one to this one?

Screenshot of the "migrated from" box

It has one missing space, and the date is changed from the old style to this one. Why was it changed? Could we get the old one back?

This looks like a bug. – Paŭlo Ebermann Sep 25 '11 at 13:51
This seems to happen on every question with a "migrated" banner on it. – Adam Lear Sep 25 '11 at 14:34
Also shouldn't that be closed by 1,2,3,4,5 at <date time>? Not to mention, there is no Month 14 :p – Sathya Sep 25 '11 at 14:36
This happens for closed, merged, locked and deleted questions, too. – Paŭlo Ebermann Sep 25 '11 at 14:44
@Sathya This is the strange middle-endian date notation they are using in the US. – Paŭlo Ebermann Sep 25 '11 at 14:45
@PaŭloEbermann Formats and units of measure are a solved problem. There are international standards. – Sklivvz Sep 25 '11 at 14:49
@Sklivvz Yeah, of course. It used to work already in the ISO 8601 format, and it likely broke because of some bug which caused some library default (this strange US date format) to be used instead of the ISO one. – Paŭlo Ebermann Sep 25 '11 at 14:54
@PaŭloEbermann ditto on Protected questions – Sathya Sep 25 '11 at 15:06
@Sklivvz, right ;-) – Arjan Sep 25 '11 at 15:08

This is a bug from a larger change this morning, I'll fix it when back at a computer in an hour or so

Update: this is now fixed and deployed.
