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 asked a question on SU a week or so ago, but seems somehow the question was off topic.

I researched services that could fit the requirements:

  1. Web based
  2. Access pages via either HTTP or HTTPS
  3. Will allow the query to be bookmarked (i.e., Link to repeat query in a GET request)
  4. Follows redirects

and couldn't find any.

Thought I asked an objective question, but it seems not.

Problem is, I can seemingly now no longer post due to my 2(!) downvotes on this sub-site, and cannot for the life of me think of any other action apart from deleting the question I still have not had answered.

Questions on Meta Stack Exchange are expected to relate to the software that powers the Stack Exchange network within the scope defined by the community. Consider editing the question or leaving comments for improvement if you believe the question can be reworded to fit within the scope. Read more about reopening questions here.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

If this is about your SU account, their Meta might be a better place. – Bart Feb 14 '13 at 7:06
@Bart - Good point!, though I had the impression that this meta was supposed to be for cross-subsite relevant questions). Before I delete this (or it gets closed, ironically for the same reason as my SU question ;) ), while I have searched, cannot confirm whether there is a way of "self-migrating" questions between sub-sites, or not. Can you advise? – user66001 Feb 14 '13 at 9:15
I don't think there is such a way to self-migrate, no. And your question is not necessarily off-topic here, but given that you're looking for advice to specific questions on a specific site, the site's Meta might be a slightly better venue. – Bart Feb 14 '13 at 9:22
@user66001 I'm not active on SU, but typically questions that has for library/tool/book recommendations are off-topic on most Stack Exchange sites, so that explains why it was closed as off-topic. But is also means that migrating the question is out of the question since there is no site where this is on-topic – psubsee2003 Feb 14 '13 at 9:27
@psubsee2003 - This maybe the confusion (unless I am reading your comment wrong). I was not asking for recommendations, just one tool that did the job. I see other questions along a similar vein (First being a bad example, but it did stay open for quite a while before being closed as off-topic)… /… / – user66001 Feb 14 '13 at 10:54
