This question has been migrated to Stack Overflow (you'll probably have to search on [macro] to see the stub), and now because of the bad decision to link it directly to that question on SO, it can't be edited.

I was cleaning up the moving the six questions to and found that I could not clean up that question stub.

How exactly are we supposed to be able to edit that stub?

  • @Sathya, No, you most certainly can't. As soon as you click on the question, you're taken to the other site. I could never get into the Super User question stub. Maybe you mods can, so you don't realize it, but that's how it works for us little people. Apr 27, 2011 at 16:56

    @LanceRoberts I'm not a mod on SO. Once you're on the migrated site, clicking on "migrated from..." takes you back to the original site with ?noredirect=1 parameter, so you remain on that page. Confirmed this works for an unregistered user/visitor as well.

  • @Sathya, now that's a cool trick, not real intuitive, but I'll remember it. I should go find a hidden features of Stack Overflow post and add that. Apr 27, 2011 at 17:07
  • @Sathya I do that all the time, I thought everyone knew how to do that?
