I'm trying to make a query to search out older, unloved questions (targets for the Necromancer and Revival badges as a framing device) in order to help combat the xkcd "Wisdom of the Ancients" problem.
There's several attempts at making such queries, but the problem is that they seem to include questions which have been merged away. On Photo-SE, it's enough of the results as to make the query less useful. I asked for help on how to fix that, and it looks like we need the data explorer to have a value that's stripped out not stripped out. Specifically, this is a feature request to please include PostHistoryTypes value 18 (Question Merged) in SEDE.
Thanks! (Or, if you have another clever way to accomplish this without, please see my original question on the topic.)
