This question was flagged for mod attention because it had been moved to Server Fault even though it was really a programming question.

So I try to edit it before reopening. That doesn't work. I figure it's because the question is still locked, so I go unlock it. Then I go ahead and reopen it. It still says "migrated to serverfault.com", so I hunt around and discover the "clear migration history" option. Great. So I click it and

Uh oh.

What did I do wrong? Is this a bug?

Should I even be reporting this publicly?

  • Well, I suppose the least that could be done is flag on SF to get it migrated back.

    The proper course is to blame another mod.

  • If it makes you feel any better, the revision history is still there. So you can finish your cleanup, for all the good it'll do...

  • I still have it open in another tab, since I was about to save it when the "Save Edits" button disabled itself. Yeah, it might not be worth the effort in the first place, but I do think it deserves a chance.

    This is why you shouldn't build websites on .NET!

    I just got a video .. it shows the questions alive and well (for now), looks like they're being held in some kind of a warehouse. The people behind it are demanding waffles, lots and lots of waffles .. and a pony to take them out of the country.

I think we'll be making that (remove migration history) a developer-only option from this point on... :)
