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

Earlier slhck tried to migrate this question to WebApps but it simply.. failed

enter image description here

I tried migrating it, and it just got closed & locked. I see now, the question's been automatically migrated to WebApps - so what was preventing it from getting migrated earlier, twice?

This has happened on CSTheory as well this morning:… – Mad Scientist Feb 14 '13 at 12:50
Maybe it had pending edit? Not enough rep on that site so can't check the suggested edits history myself. – Shadow Wizard Feb 14 '13 at 13:28
@ShaWizDowArd there was no pending edit. – Sathya Feb 14 '13 at 13:59
User post-banned on receiving site? – Al E. Feb 14 '13 at 14:34
@AlEverett no, no posts on the site.Plus we get a message if that's the case – Sathya Feb 14 '13 at 14:44
I was thinking it might have been because the user was post banned on the source site? So you can't migrate anything away either. But I wouldn't see a good reason to implement such a thing. – slhck Feb 14 '13 at 14:45
I remember an incident from quite some time ago which showed a similar behavior, turned out to be race condition which resulted in the question being closed & locked but not migrated. Could be that the situation cleared itself here, though. – Time Traveling Bobby Feb 14 '13 at 15:31
