Saw a question on SO that really belonged on meta. It was already closed as not programming related. I flagged it for a moderator as needing to be migrated not merely closed. Now I'm wondering if that is even possible?
What is meta?
- Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
- The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
- Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates
Well, considering Bill explicitly mentioned that he didn't want to migrate it only to close it as a duplicate on the destination site... I'd guess "yes". If nothing else, a moderator could instantly re-open it and then close+migrate it.
Yes, it is entirely possible for a mod to reopen a question closed for any reason and then reclose it in the migration process to another site. I've actually done this a few times on SuperUser in the recent past.
