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?

    @LanceRoberts You most certainly can i.imgur.com/53p9N.png – Sathyajith Bhat Apr 27 '11 at 16:53
  • @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. – Lance Roberts Apr 27 '11 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. – Sathyajith Bhat Apr 27 '11 at 16:59
  • @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. – Lance Roberts Apr 27 '11 at 17:07
  • @Sathya I do that all the time, I thought everyone knew how to do that? – studiohack Apr 27 '11 at 17:23
  • @studiohack so did I! – Sathyajith Bhat Apr 28 '11 at 15:37
