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

I'm seeing the same post twice (with different vote counts, and one marked as migrated) yet when I click on them, they lead to exactly the same question, showing the same vote counts. What's up??? Popular question? Alien invasion taking over the satellites? :)

The question was migrated to Server Fault's meta, which migrated it back to Meta Stack Overflow, resulting in two copies of the question.

If you click on the original copy (the one with the [migrated] in the title), you get thrown into a redirect chain that lands you on the new copy:

Ah, I didn't know that could happen... I guess I haven't come across too many migrated questions. Out of curiosity, which is the one with the migrated tag... the original or the received migration? – Barak Oct 7 '12 at 0:10
Usually questions don't get tossed back and forth like this, so it's not something you'd see happen too often. The original has the migrated tag, to indicate that it was "migrated away" to Server Fault's meta. – Tim Stone Oct 7 '12 at 0:13
