This question on Super User - http://superuser.com/questions/151184/format-an-external-hard-disk - was migrated from Stack Overflow, but doesn't have the link back to the original question - http://stackoverflow.com/questions/3018462/format-an-external-hard-disk-closed. The Stack Overflow question has the forward link.

This is the second time I've seen this today.

In both cases I flagged the SU question for moderator attention, but thought I ought to post a bug.

Here's one from yesterday:

http://stackoverflow.com/questions/3005808/two-monitors-one-button-closed

http://superuser.com/questions/150614/two-monitors-one-button

And one migrated to Server Fault:

http://stackoverflow.com/questions/3004396/nginx-and-multiple-wordpress-instances-with-fastcgi-under-same-domain-closed

http://serverfault.com/questions/149638/nginx-and-multiple-wordpress-instances-with-fastcgi-under-same-domain

An example on Meta: meta.stackexchange.com/questions/53021/… –  Grace Note Jun 10 '10 at 21:15
    
yeah, i've noticed these too, prior to seeing your mod flags. nothin' i can do afaik. either a deliberate UI change or a bug. note the original link can still be found in the question timeline and/or revision history. (timeline just gives the URL, tho; history gives a clickable link.) –  quack quixote Jun 10 '10 at 21:21
    
@quack - I realised that there was probably nothing a moderator could do only after flagging the second post. I thought the chances of one of the team seeing the flag would be small too, hence the bug report. –  ChrisF Jun 10 '10 at 21:26
    
@quack Can you test something? I saw one of these questions get closed on Meta earlier, and it spawned the migrated message. Can you see what happens if you close and then reopen the migrated question? –  Grace Note Jun 10 '10 at 21:27
    
@ccomet, @quack - if that's the case then it sounds more like a bug than "by-design". –  ChrisF Jun 10 '10 at 21:29
    
@ccornet: already tested; yes, it shows back up when the question is closed. @chrisf: the team does sometimes view the flags so it wasn't totally worthless. thanks for only flagging 2, tho. :) –  quack quixote Jun 11 '10 at 6:52

This slipped through in an optimization we made to reduce queries on the main Question Show page (i.e. this page :).

It will be fixed in tonight's deployment - thanks!
