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

A question was asked on Stack Overflow. Are password reset links that don't expire a security risk?

I marked it as a favourite, because I thought it was interesting. I also voted it +1. Then I flagged it for migration to IT Security. When it arrived here, I marked it as a favourite again, and voted it +1 again.

Surely it should have already been marked as a favourite, and should have already had a vote from me locked in? I already have accounts on SO and on ITSec.

This question came from our discussion, support, and feature requests site for information security professionals.

I'm pretty certain that favourites get cleared - not sure on votes. I'll have a scout round meta.SO to see if there is an answer there – Rory Alsop Nov 20 '12 at 18:31
I think down votes are removed. Upvotes stay, as we can see on question migrated from StackOverflow, with often have a very high number of votes on poor answers. – Hendrik Brummermann Nov 20 '12 at 18:50
