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

Let's say a question is asked on SO and it's voted to be closed and moved to SU. That leaves you with an empty question. Why not provide some visual cue as to what's happened to it? The easiest way to do that is to change it's appearance.

That could be as simple as changing the "X votes, 0 answers" box to be styled like the destination site. It could go even further but I think that one box is enough.

Titles don't really need to end with a period. – random Aug 12 '09 at 13:49
Neither do comments – Graeme Perrow Aug 12 '09 at 13:50
@random: You are going to debate an edit because I used a period? Are you serious? – GEOCHET Aug 12 '09 at 13:53
Not really, but you could do with a nice little interrobang there. – random Aug 12 '09 at 13:58
up vote 5 down vote accepted

Maybe have an additional banner just below the title sporting a little note, something like:

Super Tiny User This question can now be found at Super User

and the icon of the new home site just to not be so harsh.

I would vote you up since I like your idea, but answers don't need to end in a period. – GEOCHET Aug 12 '09 at 13:59
@Random - I like the icon idea - we need the text to be a bit more salient though so it looks more "finished" – Rob Allen Aug 12 '09 at 14:13
This whole answer was a fractured sentence‽ – random Aug 12 '09 at 14:13
Your image is broken, @random. I tried editing the URL to use i.imgur, stack.imgur and i.stack.imgur but none of them worked. – Pops Jul 1 '11 at 19:20
Well bugger that. Will have to see if it's on the harddrive somewhere. @pop – random Jul 1 '11 at 19:31
In hindsight, it's not surprising; this was before the SE Pro Imgur account existed. – Pops Jul 1 '11 at 19:42
