  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Just now I accidentally posted a question here (meta.stackoverflow), where I should have posted to It has beem migrated.
It appears my account isn't linked, as the username isn't a link and I can't edit the question.

Do I need to repost the question and flag to close the migrated one, or is this something a mod can fix?

Also, what's wrong the the content as above, (does not meet our quality standards)?
See original, unedited version.

OT: Once i added the linebreak and last sentence i could post this, but without those it wouldn't let me. – George Duckett Mar 15 '12 at 12:03
You have some links without http:// so maybe it's considered bad quality. – Shadow Wizard Mar 15 '12 at 12:04
@GeorgeDuckett: line breaks could be it, not capitalizing I in English is a deathly sin, and possibly those partial urls don't help. – Mat Mar 15 '12 at 12:10
Can you link to the question? – yoozer8 Mar 15 '12 at 12:18
@Jim: Sorry, I should have done that originally. Would this question be on topic? – George Duckett Mar 15 '12 at 12:19
Sorry about that. I looked and saw you had an active account on E&LU, so I assumed the migration would work to that site's Meta. – Bill the Lizard Mar 15 '12 at 12:32
Bug found and is being squashed. The migrated post should be associated with your account on Meta English now. :) – Adam Lear Mar 15 '12 at 18:20
@Anna, thanks. And thanks to everyone else involved. :-) – George Duckett Mar 15 '12 at 19:25

Done. thanks Jim. – George Duckett Mar 15 '12 at 12:24
Accepted as it answers the question (What do I do?). – George Duckett Mar 15 '12 at 12:33

The question is already migrated but the bug is that it didn't identify the accout association:

migration bug

The weird part - your accounts are associated:


Maybe Bill (the moderator who migrated the question) can shed some light, hope he see this post.

Yeah, that's what I'm confused about (should have mentioned it's already migrated). Also, is there some way to have my profile page look like the above image permanently? I like the free-hand circle, especially because of it's non-standard colour. – George Duckett Mar 15 '12 at 12:23
@George what you mean by "look like the above image permanently"? As for the color it was mistake actually intended to choose Blue but clicked one color below. Appears to be #00137F lol :) – Shadow Wizard Mar 15 '12 at 12:27
I was just joking that I want my profile page to have a free-hand circle, like in the image in your post. :) – George Duckett Mar 15 '12 at 12:28
Lol, thought you meant for example having the "Accounts" tab opened by default. :) – Shadow Wizard Mar 15 '12 at 12:30
