For a migrated question I see in Stack Overflow and in Server Fault

The question in Server Fault is closed too, but I miss the entries who and why it is closed.

Is there a bug in the migration process?

    I WILL FIX THIS! SOMEHOW! – Jarrod Dixon Dec 27 '10 at 22:35
  • @Jarrod Dixon: Glad to hear, but which answer am I going to choose? The only answer doesn't quite match. – bernd_k Dec 28 '10 at 9:11
  • @bernd_k: Jarrod will probably answer it after he fixes the bug. If not, someone else will, or else I'll edit my answer. Don't worry about choosing an answer yet. – mmyers Dec 28 '10 at 13:52
  • @Michael Myers OK for now I choose your answer, as the thing got planned – bernd_k Dec 28 '10 at 13:57
  • Accept rate means almost nothing on Meta, if that's what you're worried about. – mmyers Dec 28 '10 at 14:04
  • No its more moving out of active questions. Its on someones agenda, but for the rest of us it isn't hot anymore – bernd_k Dec 28 '10 at 14:08

It was actually migrated to Super User after the stop in Server Fault (I found this out by hacking the URL to see the revisions list).

Jeff has said that multiple migrations are not supported, so this bug will probably not be fixed.

  • @Grace Note: Thanks. I thought that was the one, but even knowing that I commented on it, I still couldn't find it. Probably because I got sidetracked with another question about migrating to Programmers.SE. – mmyers Dec 27 '10 at 17:31

    With the sudden explosion of sites it might be time to revisit Jeff's decision. It might not be worth fixing for a question or two, but if it's becoming more and more common... – Mark Ransom Dec 28 '10 at 7:16

It is no longer possible to "multiple migrate", that is, send a question from

  1. Stack Overflow
  2. Server Fault
  3. Super User

We disallow migration of already migrated questions so you can only migrate a question once.

(Diamond mods can still manually multiple-migrate but it is frowned upon.)
