I recently saw this question on the "newest" tab of http://codegolf.stackexchange.com. So, I tried to downvote and vote to delete, and I got the message "this question is locked."

Huh??? I had no idea why it would be locked, so I tried to view it on the main site, when I was promptly redirected to code golf meta.

Could there be a migrated banner, like the close banner? Or could we just be redirected to the place it was migrated to?


Was the closed banner not at the bottom of the question when you looked at it? Here's what it looks like to me, this might've been a "the question was right migrated after you clicked to view it" situation.

As of version 0.1.85 coming out around midnight UTC the app has a banner similar to the one for closed questions which indicates that a migrated post has been migrated and you can tap it to view the migrated version. I tried doing auto-redirecting but it was very confusing since the only thing that shows you that you're on a different site is the titlebar (confusing enough that I thought it didn't work until I read more carefully!)


  • Yes, the closed banner was there, but I had no idea that it was migrated. I tried to vote on it, and got "this question is locked," which was very confusing. – Doorknob Jan 8 '14 at 21:42
  • Ah gotcha, I'll see what I can do with regards to doing the redirect instead of dealing with the special case of "closed and locked and migrated" questions. – Kasra Rahjerdi Jan 8 '14 at 21:46
  • @DoorknobofSnow answer updated, actually fixed now :) – Kasra Rahjerdi Jan 13 '14 at 19:54
