I came across an unusual question on Meta today: http://meta.stackexchange.com/questions/179165/should-stackoverflow-run-a-programmers-matrimonial-service-to-prevent-marriage
I went to vote up some of the comments but couldn't:
I found some other questions on the matter:
- Comment not eligible for voting or flagging - Anna says it's because the question is locked (in a comment)
- this comment is not eligible for voting or flagging? - the accepted answer says it's because the question is deleted - not the case here, another answer says the comment has been deleted - also not the case here, and a third says the comment is from the old site and can't be voted, no mention of locking
- What kind of comment is not eligible for voting or flagging again mentions locking
I believe the real reason is because of the migration: comments left before migration can't be voted on (or flagged, which I think is likely a problem) on the new site. Is this in fact the reason? And if so, could the little red box say so?
This comment is from another site and not eligible for voting or flagging
Would save a moment of confusion, right?
