What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

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? stackoverflow.com/questions/10421730/… – 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
