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 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
