I wrote a lengthy question last year on SO about matrix multiplication. It was answered well, and it had gotten about 20 upvotes and 3000 views. In January a moderator decided controversially to migrate it to Code Review, despite people thinking it was more appropriate for StackOverflow. Now, just recently, the Code Review moderators have decided that it was off-topic for Code Review and locked it. This caused the answers to be migrated back to StackOverflow, but the question is deleted on SO and I can't undelete it. The upshot is that people can no longer see the useful accepted answer (sigh).

The questions are here:

Basically, I would like the StackOverflow one undeleted, so people can continue to search for and find Eric Postpischil's very useful answer. I've clicked undelete on the StackOverflow one some time ago and there has been no response. Sigh!

  • So the bug is when a migration gets rejected after the original is auto-deleted. – Mysticial Nov 25 '13 at 21:48
  • @Mysticial: Well I can still see the question and answers on the SO version, it is just in the deleted state and I can't undelete it. When you visit the SO link what do you see? – Andrew Tomazos Nov 25 '13 at 21:49
  • The whole question is deleted. – Mysticial Nov 25 '13 at 21:50
  • @Mysticial: Yeah, so the data is still there, but it is only visible to me and I assume moderators? So I just need a moderator to click undelete on it I guess? – Andrew Tomazos Nov 25 '13 at 21:51
  • My guess is: Migrated questions get auto-deleted after a month. Rejecting a migration is supposed to prevent that deletion. But if it's already deleted when the migration is rejected, then it doesn't undelete. – Mysticial Nov 25 '13 at 21:51
  • I can see it too since I'm 10k. – Mysticial Nov 25 '13 at 21:52
  • @Mysticial: Ok well try clicking reopen for me, maybe if 4 people do that it will fix it. – Andrew Tomazos Nov 25 '13 at 21:52
  • It has to be a moderator as it was deleted by community... It's worth noting that Shog9 believes you should be jealous of your site... – ben is uǝq backwards Nov 25 '13 at 21:53
  • I have a feeling this has been discussed, but why am I able to cast reopen votes on deleted questions? This isn't a bug is it? Because I was just able to vote to reopen this while it was still deleted.. – Josh Crozier Nov 25 '13 at 21:56
  • The question is now open, but deleted. (Huh? Vote to close a deleted question -- bug?) As for the cat, I still haven't looked inside the box. – jscs Nov 25 '13 at 22:00
  • Ok the vote to reopen has gone through but it is still in deleted state. MODERATOR PLEASE CLICK UNDELETE ON THIS POST: stackoverflow.com/questions/14532169/… – Andrew Tomazos Nov 25 '13 at 22:02
  • @JoshCaswell Thanks - that's what I was looking for. Just posted a bounty on it. – Josh Crozier Nov 25 '13 at 22:04
  • Fixed now. Thanks whoever did it. – Andrew Tomazos Nov 25 '13 at 22:11
