Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 153 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Using /review (on SF), I came across a post that should have been on the meta site. I clicked through to use the new flag->doesn't belong dialog, but then the auto-redirect kicked in and I was on the meta site! The question had already been migrated, which is why it was closed on the /review for the parent main site.

Link copied from question title in /review:

There is a slight timing issue here, if a post is deleted it may show up in /review for 10 minutes to an hour due to caching. Bumping the /review cache every time a post is deleted may be a bit expensive.

I will look to see if we can bounce stuff off the list once deleted, it may through off paging a bit.

The post I linked was migrated Dec 23rd, 2010 and so I assumed that migrated question were never removed from the /review. I've got no problem with the cache taking a while to catch up. – yhw42 Jan 31 '11 at 2:46

@yhw42 ah ... I follow ... it was closed ... but not deleted ... will see if I can add closed as a global filter to /review ... never show closed questions or answers – waffles Jan 31 '11 at 3:01

Harder than originally thought? I just got caught out by this too. – Benjol Jun 8 '11 at 10:44
