Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 134 Stack Exchange communities.

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.

What does that question even mean? Are people losing their controls? Is this a medical problem? –  Robert Harvey Feb 6 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 at 16:17

What would close votes do on an unlocked question @KevinB? –  Bart Feb 6 at 16:18

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 at 16:22

@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 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 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. –  Shogging through the snow Feb 6 at 16:51
