What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

This original question was asked on superuser: Developing online invoicing and inventory application.

It then got migrated to serverfault, primarily because the asker talked about "his clients" meaning this was an enterprise class solution.

Now it says it has been migrated to superuser, with a link to the original question on superuser, but the text says "This question is software development or programming related, and is a better fit for Stack Overflow." and can be found on stackoverflow.


I have attached a picture with hand drawn circles for your consideration.

This question was not ideally handled, simply. It doesn't fit anywhere on the trilogy, for now. Should have been closed as off-topic and pushed the OP to ask on a site from the business section in the stack exchange list of sites. But besides, true that such situation is creating a bug. We had it with a ping pong, once, from SO to SU and back to SO. – Gnoupi Apr 18 '10 at 14:58
Besides, this is duplicate of this: meta.stackexchange.com/questions/39451/… – Gnoupi Apr 18 '10 at 15:00
It's not that it doesn't have a second link, it's that the link doesn't match the text. At first I thought it had bounced back to SU. – Josh K Apr 18 '10 at 15:06
indeed. the show-close-reason code just doesn't handle migrations well to begin with, and multiple migrations are particularly troublesome. i think the "correct procedure", at the moment, is for a moderator to "clear migration history" before performing the additional migration. – quack quixote Apr 18 '10 at 15:19
Right, but the best solution would be to fix it. – Josh K Apr 18 '10 at 15:26
The best solution depends on which side of the "one of us will have to code the fix" you are. – Gnoupi Apr 19 '10 at 14:18
Because I don't know how the migration process works I may be over simplifying it in my mind, but if all the sites have access to the same DB, why not just insert a new entry, and tag a "migrated from / to" onto the entry. – Josh K Apr 19 '10 at 18:00

Doesn't fit anywhere, wasn't handled correctly (should have been "off topic") -- so it gets deleted.
