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

I asked my first question, about making Jini servers undiscoverable, on Stack Overflow last night, then deleted it because I thought I should do some more research first.

I guess I shouldn't have been so hasty. Can I undelete it? I don't have the URL, and it doesn't appear in the Questions part of my profile.

Is this your question?… – Dennis May 3 '12 at 4:30
@Dennis He can't see it anyway. The title is "Exclusive use of a Jini server during long-running call". Is that the one you wish to undelete? – Mysticial May 3 '12 at 4:36
The question looks off-topic anyways, to be honest. It looks like it might fit over on Programmers. – animuson May 3 '12 at 4:40

I've undeleted it for you. Enjoy.

As mentioned in the comments, the question does look a bit off-topic for Stack Overflow. You may want to try it on Programmers instead. It's a site that takes the most subjective/best-practice type questions like yours.

Or you can just migrate it there - as a former Programmers.SE Mod. :) – Mysticial May 3 '12 at 4:43
@Mysticial I can, but I'd rather let the community/Matthew take over here. :) – Adam Lear May 3 '12 at 4:44
Awesome, thank-you Anna. – Matthew Flint May 3 '12 at 4:44
@AnnaLear: i have deleted my answer but it visible to me.your comment "This actually isn't going to work - unless the OP has 10,000 reputation on SO, he can't see his question." seem not correct.Or it does not apply on answer – TofeeqAhmad May 3 '12 at 4:50
@TofeeqAhmad: You can always see your own deleted answers if you revisit the question (they're not listed under your account though). However, you can only see a deleted question until you leave the page. – animuson May 3 '12 at 4:51
@TofeeqAhmad It's different for answers. Your deleted answer is visible to you and users with 10,000 reputation (plus moderators, obviously). – Adam Lear May 3 '12 at 4:52
ok thank you @AnnaLear to make me correct.But i feel i can not make reputation on meta as its very hard.Every time my point proved wrong.Please suggest me some question on how to increase reputation on meta – TofeeqAhmad May 3 '12 at 4:53
@TofeeqAhmad You could start by reading the FAQ for Stack Exchange sites and all linked material to it. It's a lot to read, but you'll learn a lot about how Stack Exchange works and you can then spread the knowledge on Meta and harvest the sweet rep ;) – Yannis May 3 '12 at 4:55
@YahooAnswersenthusiast:thanks dude – TofeeqAhmad May 3 '12 at 4:56
Eh... the question got closed as Off Topic rather than migrated. Programmers doesn't have the jini tag. – Mysticial May 3 '12 at 6:00
@mysticial There was no guarantee the question would be migrated, Anna just undeleted it. – Yannis May 3 '12 at 8:03
@YahooAnswersenthusiast Yeah I know. I was hoping for it to get migrated and 3 of the first 4 votes were for migration. (I'm not sure about the 5th vote though.) But since the tag doesn't exist on programmers it can't be migrated. Unless it's retagged and reopened/reclosed. Or if a mod steps in. – Mysticial May 3 '12 at 15:00
@Mysticial Well I was about to tell you to ask around on Programmers chat to see if the community wants the question (I'm a Programmers mod, but I don't know anything about Jini), when I noticed Anna migrated it. Oh well, Anna knows best... – Yannis May 3 '12 at 15:22
@YahooAnswersenthusiast It seems reasonable. I hope I'm not wrong. – Adam Lear May 3 '12 at 15:29
@AnnaLear From the parts of it I understand, it seems like a perfect fit. But don't know enough about Jini to know if it's a horribly trivial or outlandishly wrong question. Oh, well, we'll find out soon enough ;) – Yannis May 3 '12 at 15:32
