This question was flagged for mod attention because it had been moved to Server Fault even though it was really a programming question.

So I try to edit it before reopening. That doesn't work. I figure it's because the question is still locked, so I go unlock it. Then I go ahead and reopen it. It still says "migrated to", so I hunt around and discover the "clear migration history" option. Great. So I click it and

Uh oh.

What did I do wrong? Is this a bug?

Should I even be reporting this publicly?

Well, I suppose the least that could be done is flag on SF to get it migrated back. – Jon Seigel Jul 23 '10 at 4:34
Dont' worry. It looks like someone is workin on ur problem. – Daniel Vassallo Jul 23 '10 at 4:37
The proper course is to blame another mod. – random Jul 23 '10 at 4:41
If it makes you feel any better, the revision history is still there. So you can finish your cleanup, for all the good it'll do... – Shog9 Jul 23 '10 at 5:15
I still have it open in another tab, since I was about to save it when the "Save Edits" button disabled itself. Yeah, it might not be worth the effort in the first place, but I do think it deserves a chance. – mmyers Jul 23 '10 at 5:27
@mmyers: what have you done??! – Shog9 Jul 23 '10 at 5:32
@Shog9: It's spreading! Run while you still can! – mmyers Jul 23 '10 at 5:34

You found a free lolcat... and you're complaining about it? – womp Jul 23 '10 at 6:18
I just got a video .. it shows the questions alive and well (for now), looks like they're being held in some kind of a warehouse. The people behind it are demanding waffles, lots and lots of waffles .. and a pony to take them out of the country. – Tim Post Jul 23 '10 at 6:52
One down! Keep up the good work, @mmyers! – Ladybug Killer Jul 23 '10 at 7:58
now it's 404 at SF and oops at SO... – Tobias Kienzler Jul 23 '10 at 11:25

I think we'll be making that (remove migration history) a developer-only option from this point on... :)

So what should I do to reopen a migrated question? – mmyers Jul 23 '10 at 16:16
cough I'm again trying to reopen a migrated question here. What is the procedure? I left it locked for now. – mmyers Aug 18 '10 at 15:30
