Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 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 has happened to me with a question titled "Understand error codes in Linux".

I asked this question, one user commented to migrate it to Unix/Linux section..another user answered it very correctly. Along with me one more person +voted for that answer and after a total of 4 comments to that answer, I accepted that answer and marked accordingly.. And now I see that question is NOT listed anywhere...neither under StackOverflow nor under Unix/Linux.

Can somebody explain this to me...?

Was it ever really there? – random Feb 28 '11 at 20:28
    
It got moved 25 seconds ago: unix.stackexchange.com/questions/8355/… – Uphill Luge Feb 28 '11 at 20:33
    
Yes, I just saw that..I think when migration happens, it would be good to notify the original place (SO in my case) of this change. – TheCottonSilk Feb 28 '11 at 20:36

There is a recently implemented system which does actually alert the author of a question about migration, via top-bar announcement. It might not be immediate, though. – Grace Note Feb 28 '11 at 20:38
    
Thanks, @random - it was nice one! +1 from myside :) @Grace Note: Thank you for letting know this feature. Yes, later I saw that..as you rightly said it was shown much later..this question cropped up in between that time! – TheCottonSilk Mar 5 '11 at 3:54

Yes, that got deleted, which makes it only visible to users with over 10k rep. I undeleted it and migrated it to Unix and Linux for you. Understand error codes in Linux

@TheCottonSilk: It was closed as 'off-topic' so I can only assume that was also the reason for deletion. – Bill the Lizard Feb 28 '11 at 20:46
    
I think we the users need to take actions diligently after understanding the true meanings of close, migrate and delete. – TheCottonSilk Mar 1 '11 at 5:40
