Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 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

Is there any explanation as to why this post would become unlocked, then locked? Curiously enough, the post was edited after that, so it couldn't really have been locked, can it?

The time stamps for all three actions are the same, by the way.

This happens with some closed questions as far as I can see, for example this one as well, but not this one.

Hmm, it seems the order is simply wrong. There was no previous lock, so the unlock can't have happened at that time. It must have been locked first and then immediately unlocked. – Bart Apr 4 '13 at 9:22
Even if the order were wrong, what would be the point in locking the post in the first place? – slhck Apr 4 '13 at 9:22
I have no clue whatsoever... – Bart Apr 4 '13 at 9:23
I can confirm that the actual order was locked-unlocked-closed, I am still investigating why. – Sklivvz Apr 4 '13 at 9:27
The locking part looks like a migration and migration rejection, which doesn't really make sense in this case. – Mad Scientist Apr 4 '13 at 10:29
@MadScientist Perhaps it does. They might have tried to migrate the question to Stack Overflow, but the OP could very well be question banned there. – slhck Apr 4 '13 at 10:36
