I went into a question that I'd flagged for merging to see if anything had happened on it, and sure enough it had been merged.

Could we get a notation like [merged] on the front page for these types of questions? A migrated question shows [closed] at least.

I'd be fine with [closed] on these also. – Lance Roberts Jul 20 '10 at 17:19
If two questions are merged, does the source question persist in question lists? I would have thought it would be like a deleted question where it will show up only until the next cache refresh. – Jon Seigel Jul 20 '10 at 17:29
@Lance: Can you link to the question? I thought there already was a [merged] note. – Bill the Lizard Jul 20 '10 at 17:35
Just found one. It says [closed]. meta.stackexchange.com/questions/2051/… @Bill – Jon Seigel Jul 20 '10 at 17:38
But that one had already been closed. What happens if a question is merged before it is closed? @Jon @Bill – mmyers Jul 20 '10 at 17:50
@Lance: Thanks, I just misunderstood you. You want the annotation in the title so it shows up on the main page. My bad, I thought you were asking for a note on the question itself. – Bill the Lizard Jul 20 '10 at 18:11
@Bill, yep, that's what I want, it always saves time to have that little bit of information up front. – Lance Roberts Jul 20 '10 at 18:27
@mmyers: Good point. Maybe create a couple of test questions, merge them together and see what happens. – Jon Seigel Jul 20 '10 at 22:24
