Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 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

This hilarious but serious question was somehow moved to two sites:

both of which aren't good picks in my opinion — this should stay on SO. But my main issue here is that the question somehow ended up on two sites. Why?

Sorry about the double retag, didn't notice your rollback until I've deleted that tag (and I don't see a way to roll back here). – Piskvor Mar 2 '11 at 21:26

Because I fat-fingered the migration on the first attempt.

I had already chosen the Statistics site in the migration window dropdown, and was confirming the site name with one of the Statistics mods, using Chat. I guess the combo reset itself to the first entry in the list (Android) when I switched focus.


The Statistics.SE mod wanted the question, and it had already been closed by the SO community. It's too bad SO didn't want it; I thought it was a genuinely good question (albeit having a quirky title).

Weird. Why would SO close this one? Anyway, it seems to have found a good home on stats – Pëkka Feb 15 '11 at 10:08

For the record, double migrations aren't possible any more, except through diamond mod intervention. (or mistakes, heh)
