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

On meta, when a question you've answered is migrated, you will receive a banner at the top of the screen:

migrated answer notification banner

However, if I am on the page and the person responsible for migrating the question because:

  • I'm a moderator and I migrated it through the close dialog
  • I am the last person to cast a vote which caused it to be migrated

And the page refreshes, don't nag me on the page refresh, as, well, it's obvious because I've performed the action:

nag on question I've migrated

It's easy enough to dismiss, but it's an unnecessary nag in this specific case.

Fair enough, but this sounds like a once-in-a-lifetime situation. – balpha Mar 2 '12 at 14:07
@balpha So that means if/when it happens again, you'll implement it? Deal. It's only been four months and this has happened to me once. I'm betting it will happen again. – casperOne Mar 2 '12 at 14:10
Why so defensive? Where did I say it wouldn't be implemented? – balpha Mar 2 '12 at 14:18
@balpha You surprise me, and defy historical trends with this, thank you =) – casperOne Mar 2 '12 at 14:39
It's always a question of "is it worth the effort". If this had been a half-day project, you'd have received a [status-declined] in no time. – balpha Mar 2 '12 at 14:54
up vote 6 down vote accepted

Unlikely situation, but adding that check was easy enough. The user casting the final close vote won't be notified of the migration anymore after the next build.
