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

Following my question here at meta, I wonder if you can delete the question Wpf way to find controls because the accepted answer is wrong. The answer contains bad code that would not do the job properly in many cases and would lead people to more trouble than help.

I consider a better solution to unlocked it (although it goes against some of your rules) because it was an appreciated one that contains very useful answers and code. But I can understand that it won't fit your strict rules.

This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason:

  • "This question pertains only to a specific site in the Stack Exchange Network. Questions on Meta Stack Exchange should pertain to our network or software that drives it as a whole, within the guidelines defined in the help center. You should ask this question on the meta site where your concern originated." – Fish Below the Ice, Flyk, S.L. Barth, Werner, Wrzlprmft
If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

What does that question even mean? Are people losing their controls? Is this a medical problem? – Robert Harvey Feb 6 '14 at 16:14
A question exists that is locked. He is suggesting that the answer provided is wrong and will cause problems to future visitors and wants it deleted. However, it is locked, so close votes are not allowed. – Kevin B Feb 6 '14 at 16:17
What would close votes do on an unlocked question @KevinB? – Bart Feb 6 '14 at 16:18
I don't know, i'm not the one asking! maybe i misinterpreted the comment. – Kevin B Feb 6 '14 at 16:19

That was a profoundly stupid way for someone to ask a rather banal question.

I edited it to be less open-ended and unlocked it.

Feel free to edit and/or down-vote the accepted answer.

It was not related to just that question. That was how it turned out. It was also about website design that would easily permits to manage those case on an easier way (than meta) which I think a lot of people will not do due to the little effort required to go to the meta website. – Eric Ouellet Feb 6 '14 at 16:22
@Eric: see… – Shog9 Feb 6 '14 at 16:23
@Shog9, I red it. But it is exactly the main reason why I wrote what I wrote. Who will take all the time to read that. Who will ask to re-open it. It could happen but if the effort is too big, people will not do it. My intention was not just to re-open that question. It was to bring to this author website a potential improvement on something that happen occasionally. This case is probably not the only one. But it's potentially the only one you ever eared about it because it take some effort to go to meta. – Eric Ouellet Feb 6 '14 at 16:49
@Shog9, also, it will delayed any potential correction if the effort is too big. You could calculate that going to meta is easy but I think that for many people it will not. – Eric Ouellet Feb 6 '14 at 16:51
You did. And it got done. And I don't think it was really all that hard. Locks are supposed to be rare, because they break things in this way - unless we start handing them out like candy, I don't think this will be a big problem. – Shog9 Feb 6 '14 at 16:51
