This question was migrated to DBA, but my answer got lost in the migration. What Gives?

If you click back to Programmers from the migrated question on DBA, you'll see your deleted answer and a comment explaining why it was deleted.

In this case, your answer was a commentary on the asker's choice of language and not a direct answer to the question, so it was deleted as part of the preparation of the question for migration to DBA.

The banner doesn't seem right, though. In a migration, deleted answers are not migrated with the question, so the banner is incorrect (and of course, a bad user experience).

  • did you read his question before deleting? It is "Can anyone suggest an approach that might complete in a reasonable timeframe?" I answered exactly that.. He did NOT ask for an SQL Answer. – Morons Feb 24 '12 at 17:32
  • @Morons I did, and had a DBA mod review the question before migration. The consensus was to delete your answer lest it be heavily down-voted on DBA. – user8 Feb 24 '12 at 17:34
  • Np, I put it back... – Morons Feb 24 '12 at 17:35
  • it will be interesting to see if it really gets down voted that much. – Morons Feb 24 '12 at 17:36
