Once I gave one good question about writing a good PHP+HTML code. I gave a bounty, and one guy answered saying that the question was very nice, with very long description. Now, I can't find the question.

Did anybody transfer it, or even delete it? How can that happen without I am informed about it?

  • Yikes. If this can happen by design, something is seriously wrong with the design.

    @Tim Stone: Thank you very much! I can't believe I didn't have notification or something about migrating. I think those questions could still stay in StackOverflow and be redirected when clicked. Thank you again.

The question you were looking for was migrated to Programmers (and then deleted on Stack Overflow). You actually should have been notified of the migration when it happened, although having never experienced this I don't know how reliable the notification is. It's possible too that you just forgot about receiving the notification, since the migration happened several months ago.

  • The notification should happen as a banner at the top of the screen. Not sure if it ever expires or what happens when the original question is deleted, though.
