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

This question on Drupal Answers Meta was deleted by the Community user 10 days after I closed it as too localized. Why?


The question was:

  • Asked on this very site on October 2012, and migrated the same day on Drupal Answers Meta
  • Closed as too localized on January 2013
  • Deleted on January 2013, 10 days after it was closed

The question's score is 13, and it has an answer with a score of 18.

Another strange fact is that the answer has a pending undelete vote.


Why was the question automatically deleted?

I also heard that Community♦ threatened to rage quit last week, might be time for an intervention. – Wesley Murch Feb 22 '13 at 16:52
@WesleyMurch Dammit... stop commenting while I'm taking a sip of my drink! – Andrew Barber Feb 22 '13 at 16:53
@WesleyMurch Time for firing it! (Or should I say fire him, or fire her?) – kiamlaluno Feb 22 '13 at 16:53
Ever since Community♦ started wearing all those fancy hats of Christmas s/he's become a law unto themselves! – JonW Feb 22 '13 at 16:53
@Jim I was expecting an edit from the Community user. Now, that would have been funny. ;) – kiamlaluno Feb 22 '13 at 16:55

Rejected migration stubs are automatically cleaned up by the system after a certain period of time, as I previously mentioned.

why on earth would that be a rejected migration? If a question about running site X is not on topic on site X's meta, I'm confused... – Kate Gregory Feb 22 '13 at 17:07
The system is indiscriminate here. The post was migrated to the per-site meta, where it was closed as "too localized", which the system took to mean the migration was being rejected. – Tim Stone Feb 22 '13 at 17:11
Something it seems the moderator didn't know. OK. – Kate Gregory Feb 22 '13 at 17:16
