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

It seems some questions that were posted shortly before it went down are now gone. Will they ever come back or was the site restored from an earlier backup?

Here is an example: Missing Question

It was a question from someone else that I was going to answer when the site was locked. When I came back after the site became unlocked, this happened.

Do you have links that at one time pointed to questions, and now do not? If so, post them here. – Michael Petrotta Aug 12 '12 at 0:57
I don’t miss any question … – toscho Aug 12 '12 at 0:58
That question's not really "gone" The link returns a 500 status code. There's something there, but the site is having trouble showing it to you. – Michael Petrotta Aug 12 '12 at 1:11

Uh, that's not a proper link to a question - that's the interim URL you'd perhaps have seen while posting an answer.

The link you want is here: play mp3 from network

The whole point of throwing the sites into "readonly" mode during the migration was to prevent folks from posting stuff that would be gone after the migration finished. So unless you were able to circumvent the readonly restrictions, nothing should be lost.
