Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 155 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

When a question migrated from another site is closed in the receiving site, some operations are performed:

  • The question is closed, and locked
  • Its answers are locked, and deleted

Re-opening the question just re-opens the question, but the question still needs to be unlocked, and its answers need to be unlocked, and undeleted.

Re-opening the question should automatically do the other two operations automatically. Clearly, that should not be done for answers that were already deleted (or deleted and locked) before the question was closed.
