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

This question was originally posted to Stack Overflow. It was then migrated to Computational Science, where it is off-topic. On 2012-06-27, the question was closed on Computational Science and remigrated to Computer Science instead (where it is on-topic, and it remained open).

However the migration is marked as rejected on Stack Overflow. The timeline shows that:

  • 12:36 Bill undeletes the migration stub, reopens the question, and migrates it to CS.
  • 16:47 The migration is rejected, even though nothing happened on CS.

I presume that the rejection at 16:47 is when the question was deleted from its first target site, Scicomp. This seems to have rewritten the history of the question to mark the May 28 closing as plain “off-topic”, while rejecting the latest migration.

Please ensure that rejecting a prior migration has no effect on the current migration.

I've seen this happen with a Mathematica question before, too. At least it sounds similar. – Adam Lear Jun 30 '12 at 17:04
